If you really need to use windows, try cygwin with managed mounts:

  mkdir c:/cygwin/usr/src.managed
  mount -o managed c:/cygwin/usr/src.managed /usr/src

This will give you full unix semantics within /usr/src.
Obviously it works only with cygwin apps (windows will only see url-
encoded file names), so you can forget about tortoise.
