I used to get it a lot on the server side before I restuctured the RCS code - essentially a file close/unlock on NT happens fractionally after you close the file. Normally this isn't a problem, but if you catch it quickly enough a close/rename will fail. Unfortunately once this happens it never seems to release the lock on the file - I tried a 1 second sleep between retries and it still didn't release the lock, even though the handle logger said there were no open handles on the file.
