This is somewhat unrelated, but I can't help but point out the amazingly
useful utility, Unlocker: http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

Any time you get an "Access denied" type error it will pop up a dialog
showing you which apps have the file locked and you can immediately
close the file handles (presuming you understand what the consequences
may be). If you can't unmount a drive, you can right click the drive,
run the Unlocker context menu and again you get a nice list of who's
using what (particularly handy with TSVNcache <-> TrueCrypt interaction).
