That is strange...I've seen a few reports of that kind of thing in the
Microsoft filesystem newsgroups -- phantom files or folders that are not
accessible or deletable until a system restart. You might check over
there for hints on what could be causing it -- I don't know how
Subversion could cause it aside from a filesystem bug.

Maybe Explorer has glommed onto it or something? Have you tried logging
out and back in (to kill off Explorer and userland apps without
rebooting) to see if that works? Also, do you have Index Server going?
