I am hoping that this is due to the fact that the current Vista client
is in beta (debugging code enabled?).

I tried to create an AutoDesk Civil 3D 2008 deployment on one of our OES
Linux servers yesterday, and the file copy took literally hours, and
then it eventually had problems writing to the server and eventually

I tried it two or three times before I gave up.

I have just now begun the exact same deployment, but from a Windows XP
virtual machine on that same Vista host, and the file copy is cruising!!

Anyone else notice anything like this?
