How to get rid of .svn directories from working copy?

I have a tool storing its data (electronics design) in a numerous binary
files distributed over many subdirectories. It generally works well with
SVN, except for the following issue.

The tool has a GUI for design management, which permits copying, moving,
renaming and deleting parts of the design. The problem is, all these
functions operate recursively on whole subdirectories. If the user
attempts to make a copy of a design part, a '.svn' directory belonging
to it will be copied as well. This requires the user to manually delete
'.svn' directory from the newly copied part before adding and commiting
it to the repository.

How to move all .svn directories out of the working copy directory? Is
there any configuration option for this? Alternatively, how to prevent
SVN client failure when it comes across bogus .svn data.

Thank you,
\R.
