[darcs-users] failure in issue1248.sh

In the 2.3 release branch and on HEAD, issue1248.sh fails for me, on a 
Debian lenny box (which is GHC 6.8.2, with some patch applied IIRC). I 
configured -fzlib (though I think that is now the default anyway, at least 
on the release branch).

The failure isn't actually related to what the test is checking for, but 
rather it happens in a call to darcs optimize --reorder, with the 
following error:

darcs: _darcs/patches/pending.new-0: openBinaryFile: resource busy (file 
is locked)

It seems to be triggered by the following patch:

   * Fix index invalidation in the move command.
   Ignore-this: e2fa46552a1ac28aea587c96c0932298

Thorkil was unable to reproduce the problem on a couple of other machines 
with different GHCs etc, so it would be good to know if anyone else is 
seeing this.
