There are a couple of things one can do in a directory's Properties box 
(right click) to reduce interference.
1. Under General/Advanced, uncheck 'allow Indexing Service' and click Yes 
to recursively apply to subdirs and files.
2. Under Sharing, check 'Make private'.  This is recursive, but only works 
for dirs under My Documents or on Desktop.  This would be most useful, I 
think, if buildbots run as a separate user.
Have these already been done?
