I don't understand your reference to "file which Win32 labels as 'access
violation'" but it sounds to me like you're referring to a file which is
opened for exclusive use by some other program which Cygwin's 'rm' then
tries to remove. If this is the case, see from earlier today:
It covers the same topic in a different context.
If you feel something else should be done here, provide a patch. Keep
in mind though that not everyone is trying to use 'rm' interactively
