The error happens when CVSNT wants to create a file (e.g. due to an update
command) but it can't do that because a file with the same name already
exists (and wasn't created by CVSNT itself).
Do you copy files from one place to another? Or perhaps those files are
built from another ones, and at the same time, they're in the repository?
I'm unsure of the details, but I think a combination of rename + branch
(where the file exists on one branch but not on the other) might provoke
this error too.
