if another program blocks this directory the error message is different (and correct, even it does
not show the process id):

$ svn cleanup
svn: In directory ''
svn: Error processing command 'delete-entry' in ''
svn: Can't remove 'ui3/term/.svn': The process cannot access the file because it is being used by
 another process.

and if you do not block the directory with another process, it gets "permission denied". for both
errors, see also the long log of

Then most probably some other proces holds that file (or directory)
open. It can be anoteher shell, or an Explorer instance, or even a
program (or DLL) that's running from there.

Such is the curse of Windows. It has nothing to do with Subversion.
