Bah. I don't have disk defragmenter, nor backup software running on my
system. Just stress.pl on an NTFS mounted on a RAM-based disk device.
SVN is creating all the files in this case. If the indexing service is
blocking access to my files, then that's a bug in the indexing service,
so sorry.

Nonsense. Any system component may touch the files I create only in a
way that doesn't interfere with normal file handling semantics. I submit
that any filter drivers that are fiddling with those files are broken if
my user-mod app can detect them (via an access-denied status on move,
for example).
