in thread rename works sporadically on windows??

On windows it helps to check $^E
C:\>echo >2 C:\>perl -e"open IN, 2 or die $!; warn 'opened';rename 2, 2222 or die +$!,$/,$^E" opened at -e line 1. Permission denied The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another + process at -e line 1.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
