BUG/FEATURE; svn status bails out

[searced for "being used by another process" in the issuetracker and
found no submitted issues]

Hello all,

When running svn status in a commandline (winxp) in the project where
studio.net is running the command bails out because visual studio ha
locked a file. This is pretty unintuitive, methinks it should keep
listing the changes.

Example (Having visual studio up and running):
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

c:\code\mophun\BTH-Pinball>svn status
M Debug\BuildLog.htm
svn: Can't open file 'BTH-Pinball.ncb': The process cannot access the
file because it is being used by another process.


Then, closing studio gives this result, i.e. the status command KEEPS
LISTING the in the files that are sorted after the previously locked file:

c:\code\mophun\BTH-Pinball>svn status
M Debug\BuildLog.htm
M BTH-Pinball.ncb
M BTH-Pinball.suo
M BTHPinball.mpn


So, for example, even if Studio is open, I'd still like to se if
BTHPinball.mpn has changed. Not too much to ask for, is it? Especially
considering that everything else in subversion works just fine for me. =)

Of course, I would have been happy to submit code that fixes this, but I
simply cannot build subversion on my windowsbox, but that's another story.
