What does 409 Conflict mean?

I am trying to upload a large volume of small files to SharePoint. The
initial upload via WebClient worked. Trying to overwrite the files I
started getting into some troubles - files would fail to write.

I picked up a DAV client and it reports consistently 409 Conflict when
I try to overwrite a file.

I have 2000+ files (html documentation), so I'd really like to get
this working. What do I do next?
