In that case, the folder itself has the problem. A conflict in the
folder properties maybe?

"obstructed" status means, that the folder is 'in the way' of another
folder. That usually happens if you have an unversioned folder (e.g.
"Release\bin") and then someone else accidentally versiones that folder.
Then, when you do an update, Subversion tries to add the new versioned
folder, but it sees that you already *have* such a folder, i.e. your
folder is in the way.

Wow. A really lengthy mail just to ask about improving the cache?
Try a nightly build. The cache should work now much better.
