Yeah, you're right.  It may be impossible to completely eliminate the
risk of a process getting stuck without doing something external to
the build process, so long as the first thing a new build tries to do
is an svn checkout that will fail if the process is still running.

Having the kill operation in clean.bat covers the vast majority of the
common cases with a minimum change, so seems the simplest.
