Re: svn up after svn mv, access is denied error, w2k client

No. These are not the same issues.

The .svn problem was that some applications couldn't handle leading
dots in filenames. Windows (the operating system) was fine here.

The problem below is a Windows issue. Windows can apparently return
the error ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED for both temporary (the case SVN usually
runs into) and permanent errors. A simple loop attempting to rename
or delete a file would solve this, except that there is no way to
tell if the failure was permanent in the first place.

The cause of this is well understood now (and it is not SVN related)
but what to do about it is unclear.

strange ... we did not experience this error till one/two month ago or
so? might it be related to the "hide .svn"?
