First, I am using Windows 2000 not Windows XP -- do both have the same
Second, I am not using any virus scanning software! The only viruses
they are able to catch is the dead ones...

Let's presume that there is something which is "holding a file open for
too long" -- how can I detect it?


P.S. I have used SVN with BDB repos before without such problems -- it
seems that "upgrading" to FSFS was not a good idea.
