What to do when Update, Clean, Resolve everything else does not work?

We use Tortoise SVN 1.3,5 and Subclipse 1.0.3. These are the latest
versions.
 
We periodically get Tortoise or Subclipse to fail to work correctly.
 
For example, if we try to do a clean up, we get a "path is not a working
copy" message.
 
If we try to do an update, we get "attempted to lkock an already locked
dir."
 
The way we get into trouble is by deleting, copying or moving files in or
out of the folders in question. We can appreciate how Eclispe may need to
be Refresh'ed when we do things "behind its back," but are amazed at how,
when we do something incredibly simple in "full view of Tortoise or
subclipse" that the latter sometimes goes into a left hand doesn't know what
the right hand is doing debacle.
 
In the past we've usually been able to hurl combinations of Refresh's,
Update's, Clean Up's and Resolve's to simply make the nuisance messages get
out of the way, but currently, we're locked up.
 
Whether this is a bug or not, it is certainly in our minds, brought on by
the simplest and commonest actions and therefore we feel SVN is, at best, a
fair tool that has some treacherous and time wasting pitfalls.
 
Because we have experienced this same problem for over a year on several
different PC's and over several versions of Eclipse and several versions of
Tortoise and subclipse, we have to believe that the community at large
simply does not have this problem or denies it existence.
 
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
