300 secs (!) fs timeout is really broken.
Looks more like a locking or network timeout issue.
What error codes does unlink(3) return?
Why don't you use DeletFileA() instead of unlink()?
Or even better, why don't you use this delete on close snippet instead:
h = CreateFile (win32_name, 0, FILE_SHARE_READ, &sec_none_nih,
OPEN_EXISTING, FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE, 0);
if (h != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
(void) SetFileAttributes (win32_name, (DWORD) win32_name);
BOOL res = CloseHandle (h);
//syscall_printf ("%d = CloseHandle (%p)", res, h);
if (GetFileAttributes (win32_name) == INVALID_FILE_ATTRIBUTES)
//syscall_printf ("CreateFile (FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE)
//syscall_printf ("CreateFile (FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE) failed");
SetFileAttributes (win32_name, (DWORD) win32_name &
~(FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY | FILE_ATTRIBUTE_SYSTEM));
/* Try a delete with attributes reset */
if (DeleteFile (win32_name))
syscall_printf ("DeleteFile after CreateFile/CloseHandle succeeded");
It should only happen a ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION on NT systems with such
a long timeout. This is then a concurrency problem. win95 will not
return ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION, only ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
