When I use
ls, I get the following message.
ls: .afpDeleted38045157: No such file or directory
svn fails in this directory with
svn: E070008: Can't read directory 'current path': Partial results are valid but processing is incomplete
Apparently, these .afpDeleted files are some form of deleted files that are still open according to http://lists.apple.com/archives/macos-x-server/2004/Jun/msg01271.html
How do I know which program generated this file? I can't even access what's in the file, nor can I remove it arbitrarily.
I'm using Mac OS 10.8.4.
EDIT: After killing several suspected processes, I found out it was my MATLAB. I still want to understand more about this afpDeleted* business though.
