On Mac OS X, if the current working directory is a Windows volume mounted 
via SMB, then there is the following problem:

$ darcs get http://abridgegame.org/repos/darcs

Fail: takeLock: unsupported operation (Operation not supported)

Additionally, this failure leaves a half-complete darcs directory behind.
The DARCS_SLOPPY_LOCKS=1 workaround helps here too...
