Windows 'Access denied' errors

Thanks to James' time spent tracing, I think we're closer to finding out
what is going on here. It appears that the COM+ Event Notification
service (and perhaps the System Event Notifcation service) are following
applications around and opening/querying files they haved touched. For
confirmation, could you turn off those services and see if the problem
goes away in your test script, James?

Even if these services are the cuplrits, however, I'm not sure it's
reasonable to expect either MS to change them (although I'm don't know
what they are screwing with private files for anyway), or for people to
shut them off since apparently they are useful application services and
people may be using them and also want to use Subversion. Can someone
comment on their usefulness and in what environments/applications they
are used? They ship installed and turned on by default in all versions
of Windows 2000 and higher (2003 included).

So, if they are confirmed to be the cause, what should the resolution
be? Bounded loop patch, tell users to shut them off, other ideas...?
