The problem still seems to exist =( The following is a transcript from
my XP machine:


C:\Temp\foo>mkdir repo

C:\Temp\foo>cd repo

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs init
Successfully initialized repository!

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs whatsnew  1>bla

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs add bla

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs record -a --patch-name=1
Darcs needs to know what name (conventionally an email
address) to use as the author).  If you provide one now
I will store it in the file '_darcs/prefs/author', and
use it by default in the future.  To change your preferred
author address, simply delete this file.

What is your email address? foo at bar.com
Finished recording patch '1'

C:\Temp\foo\repo>cd ..

C:\Temp\foo>darcs get repo
Directory 'C:/Temp/foo/repo' already exists, creating repository as
Copying patches...
Finished getting.

C:\Temp\foo>cd repo

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs whatsnew  1>bla2

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs add bla2

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs record -a --patch-name=2
Finished recording patch '2'

C:\Temp\foo\repo>darcs push -a ..\repo_0

Fail: C:/Temp/foo/repo_0/darcs-16797: removeFile: permission denied

So far so good... finished merging.
Finished applying...

C:\Temp\foo\repo>cd ..

C:\Temp\foo>attrib repo_0

C:\Temp\foo>attrib repo_0\*
