It's still going.  It's not so bad now that there haven't been so many
trunk changes to update to.  I am having this bizzare deadlock bug
that happens in the middle of copying a file where a read/write call
to the VFS completes, but Windows Explorer just sits there waiting for
some unknown condition to occur and doesn't continue sending more
data.  Hitting the cancel button seems to give it a kick in the pants
and it transfers a whole bunch of data before closing the fd.
