I have a problem delecting a file that has a UNC path. I am using 1.8.4 
on windows and this same thing did work in 1.8.2.

Here is the pertinent excerpt of code:
=========================================
puts shp.source;   ==>  //rm-graff-c/c$/ftpxfr/somefile2454018103834.txt
puts LOCDIR + '/failed_files'   ==> 
//rm-graff-c/c$/ftpxfr//failed_files
cp(shp.source, LOCDIR + 'failed_files')  ==> this works
puts File.file?(shp.source)  ==> this returns true
rm(shp.source)  ==> this fails with:

C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1281:in `unlink':
   Permission denied - //rm-graff-c/c$/ftpxfr/somefile2454018103834.txt 
(Errno::EACCES)
=========================================
I also tried File.delete(...) and several variations. I really doubt 
that the file is open. I do read from earlier in the program using CSV 
but this is in a block and the end of the block (to my knowlege) should 
be automatically closing the file. I could resort to using .new and 
explictily closing the file when CSV reading is done but I more suspect 
that someting has happened between 1.8.2 and 1.8.4 that is the culprit.

Any ideas? Is this a perhaps a known issue that 1.8.5 fixes. I can with 
a little effort try on unix but I am not sure how to form the equivelent 
UNC pathname in unix to //rm-graff-c/c$/ftpxfr/somefile2454018103834.txt 
- is the C$ just a windows thing?


Thanks,
