Bert and I were able to reproduce this issue with help from Daniele
and Marco. In short: Subversion 1.9.x doesn't work with working copies
stored on SMBv1 network shares (i.e. hosted on Windows XP/Windows
Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 with SMBv2 disabled). It is not
related to background antivirus/indexers. So the bug affects many

While r1701298 fix still makes sense to workaround background
antivirus/indexers it doesn't help to fix Access Denied errors on
SMBv1 network shares.

In nutshell problem is that SetFileInformationByHandle() API cannot be
called more than once if first call failed for any reason for SMBv1
shares. We retry SetFileInformationByHandle() call if destination
directory doesn't exist or if we rename over read-only file. It works
fine for local directories or SMBv2 shares, but doesn't work for SMBv1
network shares. SetFileInformationByHandle() returns
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED without even sending request to SMB server.

We developed patch that converts all ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED errors from
SetFileInformationByHandle() to SVN_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_FEATURE and
fallbacks to normal close + rename() (see attached file), but I'm not
sure it's the best solution and going to investigate this problem
