[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ and SMB mount problems?

I'm using 3.1.5 on Windows 2008, and I have a variety of problems when I
try to run from a SMB share. For various reasons this is necessary (eg,
using RMQ as part of automated tests in builds, which happen on shares),
and it just doesn't seem to work. 

All the problems seem to boil down to filename rename failing. With
rabbitmq-plugins, enabling or disabling a plugin seems to succeed, but
leaves an enabled_plugins.tmp file with the edits, as the rename silently
fails. On a local drive, it works fine.

Similarly, while trying to start up the server itself, it fails
to rename cluster_nodes.config.tmp into place, but in this case there
is some error checking and the startup actually fails. If I manually
rename it and try again, it fails on nodes_running_at_shutdown.tmp.
That one I can't resolve manually.

Is this a known issue? Are there any workarounds aside from running
on local storage only (which, as mentioned, isn't practical in many
important cases)?
