Dear Darcs crew

I'm just writing to advertise my continued failure to get 'darcs pull' to work.

To reproduce:

1.        Unpack http://darcs.haskell.org/~simonpj/ghc-HEAD-2007-08-29-ghc-corelibs-testsuite.tar.bz2

2.       darcs pull http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc -av

Result is

darcs failed:  problem gzopening file for write: _darcs/patches/20080126191939-e23c7-efc06647390321527cc18de0e08c017b568b36ae.gz-0

(In fact I did step 2 from a local rep, because doing it over the network takes a very long time, but I saw the same behaviour earlier when pulling from http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc.)

I'm doing this under MSYS on Windows, with
sh-2.04$ darcs --version
1.0.9 (release)

I'm giving up on this, and instead I'll start from a more recent snapshot of the repo.  Nevertheless I have to say that it is very unsettling that Darcs fails in mysterious ways.

I'll keep the bits around in case you want me to try any other experiments.

Thanks for the update.  I'll let you know on the issue842 ticket if I can
