Re: Issue report: subversion 1.7.2 windows command line client cannot copy URL -> WC if URL contains externals

We ask that folks send questions, concerns, and potential bug reports to
users_at_subversion.apache.org. (I've taken the liberty of dropping dev@ and
adding users@ to the distribution list of this response so that follow-ups
go to the right place.)

I wasn't able to easily reproduce this using Linux and a trunk version of
the codebase. (I know that's two strikes against me in terms of trying to
match your scenario. My 1.7 client build is horked at the moment, though.)
One thing that comes to mind with the situation you are seeing is the
possibility that an anti-virus software could be actively scanning the
temporary files that Subversion creates and, in doing so, blocking access to
those files from Subversion. Most modern anti-virus software packages offer
a "snooze" feature of sorts -- you might try temporarily disabling your AV
package and re-trying the checkout. If all goes well, consider adding your
checkout area to the AV package's list of excluded scan directories.

Good luck.
