these days I'm trying to resurrect the GeoTools OGR datastore (a bridge 
between the GeoTools data reading API and the OGR one).
Things are working fine, thanks for the nice job on the Java bindings.

The one problem I'm seeing at the moment is an issue trying to repack
shapefiles, when I run the sql command "REPACK <layername>" GDAL prints 
the following error message on the console:

ERROR 4: Failed to create temp file 

Hum... see the mixup between unix and windows separators?
Do you need a stand-alone example to reproduce the issue?
