Thanks, I would be very interested in hearing how they managed a
reliable workaround.

I believe the same problem was mentioned on the CVSNT list a while back,
and the
lead developer's belief was that the NT filesystem architecture was
lags, i.e. renaming/deleting the file was not strictly atomic with the
filesystem actually updated to reflect the delete. I don't remember if
this was
just NTFS or also on FAT32.

I'll ask on that list for what he remembers (and what he did to work
around it).
