I recently upgraded my Windows XP machine from OpenAFS 1.5.32 to 1.5.51
and then to 1.5.52.  With both versions, 1.5.5x, when I do compilations
under Visual Studio 2003, I get error messages of the form:

  cl : Command line error D2022 : cannot open
  Could not delete temporary file. Make sure that you do not have it
     open and that the file is not protected.

If I list the Release directory on a Linux box, I see that rsp file has
some trailing junk characters (from find -ls)

  37450452 1 -rwxrwxrwx 1 ckarney  ckarney 157 Aug 20 15:35

Downgrading back to 1.5.32 gets rid of this problem.

Perhaps this is some bug that's triggered by OpenAFS's support of
Unicode filenames?
