problem: hot-backup failing with access denied error

Hi,

We are running svn 1.3.2 on Windows. For backup we run hot-backup on
our repositories. Unfortunately hot-backup is failing to delete the
outdated FSFS repositores from the backup folder. The error is:

Removing old backup: \\dbtinstall\dba-backup\SVN-Backup_new\svn\dc-0
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "d:\Repos\hot-backup.py", line 151, in ?
    shutil.rmtree(old_backup_subdir)
  File "d:\programme\python23\lib\shutil.py", line 142, in rmtree
    raise exc[0], (exc[1][0], exc[1][1] + ' removing '+arg)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied removing
\\dbtinstall\dba-backup\SVN-Backup_new\svn\dc-0\db\format

Analysis shows:
 * the db\format file is write protected on all our repositories
 * hot-backup.py keeps the write protect flag when performing the copy
 * The shutil.rmtree(old_backup_subdir) command in hot-backup.py fails
because the file is write protected.

This is not a permission error; the script works fine if I manually
remove the "w" flag from all files.

I do not speak enough python to know how to deal with this.
Any ideas?

Norbert
