Looking at the code, the error message is thrown when  
apr_file_rename() fails, specifically when a temporary file is swung  
into place in the cache.

Looking at the APR code, there is a forest of ifdefs that seem to  
choose one of MoveFileEx(), MoveFileW(), MoveFileExW() or MoveFile().  
Ideally, the Microsoft API documentation should explain under what  
conditions the error "Access is denied" is thrown.

Does Windows allow you to move a file into place while the replaced  
file is still open for read?
