Sounds like the typical (rather unhelpful) error message you get when
trying to check out multiple files whose name differs only in case onto
a computer which is case-insensitive as far as file names go (most
probably, Windows). Check to see if the repository has a forall.html,
FORALL.HTML, ForAll.HTML, etc. file. You'll need to remove/rename the
conflicting files.

(This arises because Linux/Unix/most operating systems can tell the
difference between upper and lower case letters, so the files are
clearly different; however, Windows can't, and so it thinks the files
are the same, and puts one file on top of another. After moving the
first .tmp file out to the working copy, it removes it; when it tries to
move it again, it throws the error you saw...)
