Excuse me for not giving much detail:

The OS is Win XP SP2, R is 2.7.0, DBI is 0.2-4, the mirror was Gttingen, but I had similar problems with Zrich.

A rough translation of the warning is: " Package 'DBI' successfully extracted and MD5 sums successfully checked. Warning: cannot move temporary installation
'C:\Programme\R\R-2.7.0\library\file5f906952\DBI' to 'xlD $@\R\R-2.7.0\libra'". The cryptic part is not constant when i repeat the installation, another example is
'xl<u $@\R\R-2.7.0\libra' or 'xl/w $@\R\R-2.7.0\libra'.

I hope this makes a bit more sense.
