I hope to set up a vmware image of win2k03 server running hudson or 
bamboo soonish; I could set it to do ant head too. It will stop me doing 
windows proof work.

Last week I added the file sshexec.sf to the repository, alongside an 
existing file sshExec. Everything works for me, but someone else got 
wierd errors from SVN about being unable to copy a file because it 
existed. Even clean checkouts didnt work.

of course, the reason is simple, windows doesnt like two files of the 
same name in the same directory; I'd broken the build.

Which is why I need a CI server on windows, because the linux ones catch 
different problems.
