[On-list this time]

I ran into the same problem when checking out WebKit (on Windows) a
coulpe of weeks ago. Following some older posts on this mailinglist,
it turned out you have to remove the 4XPath folder and check it out

While this, obviously, is a work-around, it allowed me to checkout the
entire repository. Later updates (via the update-webkit script)
weren't bothered by this.
