Yes, Subversion attempts to deal with this already. See references to
the WIN32_RETRY_LOOP macro in subversion\libsvn_subr\io.c.

It is, of course, possible that code has crept in that does not use
the subversion wrappers for removing files or dirs and so could
exhibit the problem. Do you mind scanning the source for that and
creating a patch if you find any? If you could even scan the source
and file an issue with the details if you find somewhere the
subversion wrappers aren't being used, that would be great too.
