[I think Brian suggested the race condition and I supplied the

(Tearing out hair by grasping at straws? Hmm... ;-) )

Just a few curious questions:

Can you do the rename manually? (From the Explorer or suchlike?)

What are the file sizes of the .RData files?

A quick google run suggests that XP has problems with files
erroneously being marked as being in use in several other contexts.


One of the notes has a hint about "disabling the LastAccess feature in
the registry" or somesuch, but don't take my advice on this stuff, I
don't know anything about Windows....
