Ultimately you will get better luck on the Subversion users@ list. Even
though you are using Subclipse, it is the Subversion API that is doing all
of this work and ultimately producing the error.

You do not say what OS you are running on, but since you mention Samba, I
assume the client might be running Windows? If so, this problem is
reasonably common on Windows and has something to do with anti-virus
programs locking files while they are being scanned. If your anti-virus
program lets you exclude certain directories, or all directories named
".svn" give that a try.
