I've made the fileutils-4.0-3 version of du available to
my users, and I have one who is reporting the following problem

du -k d:\path\to\file
"Permission Denied"

There is another process that has the file open, and they are
using the du in a periodic loop to make sure that the disk doesn't
fill up.  If they kill the process that has the file open, then the
du works successfully.

Is there something within Cygwin.dll that keeps du from successfully
accessing the file while another process is accessing it??
