I pulled you patches and built darcs (I added --disable-otpimize).

When I run darcs inittree on a fresh directory, I get:

Fail: already exists
Action: renameFile
Reason: File exists
File: ./_darcs/inventory-0

I tried to apply workaround with removeFile, but it's obvious that my Haskell
skills are nil since with these "workaround" I get:

$ darcs inittree

Fail: does not exist
Action: removeFile
Reason: No such file or directory
File: _darcs/prefs/boring

What is your environment?

I'm running latest MinGW with MSYS (latest) under Win98.
