at work we see the unlink failure quite often:
we you have eclipse open with the egit plugin, and then
do something with the repository (like gc) you almost
always get this unlink error. I guess either the egit
plugin or windows (my money's on this one) keeps files locked.

we have not (yet) noticed any problems regarding this error.

maybe you can shed some light on this shawn?
does the plugin keep tabs on repo files?
