For the output, I can give you the whole line. having the whole output will 
be hard to send over because of all the security issues over here.

Distcc[4016] (dcc_remove_state_file) Warning: failed to unlink 
D:/dir1/dir2/dir3/distcc_dir/state/binstate_4016: Permission denied

As for the command input, not sure if it's what you want, but here's nothing 

powerpc-eabi-gcc -g -pipe -fsigned-char -funswitch-loops -fgcse-after-reload 
 -mstring -mcpu=603e -fshort-wchar -o0 -Ddebug=1 -D__powerpc__ somefiles

After a little talk with the programmer, they are not running the program 
when the error occurs. In fact, they can't compile it if they are using it.

I know we should upgrade, I checked the last cygwin distribution, and it 
still has that version.

On the other hand, the programmers can still compile their code even if they 
have that error. just wanted to make sure it wasn't a sign of more trouble 
coming our way.

If you need any other info, don't hesitate

When reporting problems, please say exactly what command you ran and quote 
the *whole* output.
That problem could perhaps be because you are trying to compile a program 
that is currently running.
P.S. distcc 2.18.3 is five years old; time to upgrade to a more recent

       Start having those problems since some hardware failure a couple of 
days ago. It doesn't seems to stop the compilation but every once in a while 
one of the programmer bump on that error. Is it safe to delete these files 
(apart for a compilation failure)?

Please note that I am using distcc 2.18.3 which come with the cygwin 

Thank you.
