Hi Petr,
I tried to reproduce that issue, but with no success, with the last
darcs trunk version on Windows.

I think that this is not a darcs bug, but a Windows bug on file
management. We found in some scripts that if you do a file operation
that gets cached by the OS, and then right after you try to delete
that file, the deletion fails.

There's a quick way to tell if that is the issue: just add a "sleep"
of 1 second on the test execution before darcs check. If it fixes the
issue, that's it :).
