$ darcs w   
darcs.exe: DeleteFile: permission denied (Access is denied.)
$ darcs --version
2.3.0 (release)

--debug and --debug-verbose don't reveal anything.  I don't know of a way to
tell which file it's trying to delete - I tried StraceNt but that doesn't show
the string being passed to DeleteFile.
