Hi Brent,

If you look at the archive of this list you will see that this problem
already rose several times. It is supposed to be a problem with virus
scanners blocking the files. Under Windows Subversion simply tries to
move the file several times (because of this it works with TortoiseSVN)
whereas under cygwin this isn't done.

I provided a patch to the dev list some days ago which applies this
retry mechanism also to cygwin (but the patch isn't committed yet).
