Sorry about that, for some reason the builds I've been making are
plagued by this, and no amount of tweaking seems to help.  See
this message:


Peter Strand's build at http://zarquon.se/darcs/darcs-20040504.zip didn't
exhibit the removeFile problem on the repository tested in the above
thread, could you try it with yours?

My suspicion is that this is a conflict with either a version of GHC or the
various support libraries.  Peter, could you give us the details of your
build environment?
