svn_io_xxx_file errors, working copy locked.

Hi all,

        We have a develop team using subversion, primary client is
TortoiseSVN. One of my colleagues runs into the same kind of trouble from
time to time in these days.

        The problems are,
1) He do a "update" in TortoiseSVN, and gets a message box, saying that
something wrong. You know, I cannot copy the message in the MessageBox, so
we do not remember the exact message. But He remembers that the message
said, "svn_io_move .... error", or something like that.
2) After that, the working copy is locked. If he tries to run "svn cleanup"
in that dir, the following error message is displayed:

svn: Problem running log
svn: in directory ''
svn: System cannot find the specified file. <--- this words were in Chinse
(for he is using Chinese version win2k)
svn: svn_io_copy_file: error copying
'.svn/tmp/text-base/managerlist.py.svn-base' to 'managerlist.py.3.tmp'

       Actually, the dir '.svn/tmp/text-base/' contains no files.

        I had this trouble once before, fortunately the working copy was
not locked. I run another "update" in TSVN, all were OK again. I am using
English win2k SP4. My colleague is using win2k simplified Chinese version,
with almost all pre-sp4 patches.

   We don't know how to fix this. All we can do is checkout another working
copy, copy the modified files to the new folder.

    We have tried upgrading the server to 0.25, and client to the newest
version (TortoiseSVN 0.14, svn-0.25). The locked working copy still cannot
be cleaned up.
