Several things came to mind when I read the original message:

1) the OP didn't tell us what, if anything, the Windows error popup said;

2) the OP didn't tell us whether the failure is always on the same file or on
different files;

3) the OP didn't tell us whether the subst'd drive is a local or networked drive;

4) the OP didn't tell us whether the client box was running any antivirus
software (or other software that hooks into the filesystem);

5) the OP didn't tell us whether this only happened only when two or more
commits were made in quick succession, nor how large the working copy is.

My gut instinct says to obtain the specifics of the machine(s) involved in much
more detail before spending that much time trying to get a backtrace. The
upgrade to 1.4.0 may be coincidental with some other change in the environment.
