Did you eventually WORK with that repository you checked out? For
example, did you try to compile it before you tried to release it?

On Windows, I occassionally find that I cannot release a sandbox after I
compiled it. Sometimes, not even "rm -r <sandbox>" works.

In my case, I use MS VC++ 6.0 for compilation (most of the times). It
seems it holds some files open in some cases, even if it is closed!

Sometimes, I can see a process "MSDEV" in my task manager. Killing that
most often helps me release (and remove) that sandbox. Anyway, in some
more rare cases, I have to log off and log in again to release that
sandbox. :(
