That's what I figured originally, so I basically just tried running my
"prepare" target first, which only copies files over, then I run the
"clean" target, which deletes those files.  No process could possible be
using those files at that point, but I still get the errors.

Ideas ?  Possible bug ?

If the files are being used by another process, Win2k, by default puts a
lock on these files.  Hence, you will receive an error on delete.
