SVN Update - unrecoverable error when updated file is locked by another process?

I have already sent this message, but got no answer ... so, I repeat my
question/bug report, for it is important to me.


--- Original message ---

Hello, everybody!

When I try to update my local copy of directory (example Root\Knihovny)
and some process locks updated file, I get ordinary error message:

Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkr_fa.VCT
Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkr_fa.VCX
Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkr_fa.vc2
Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkrprog.VCT
Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkrprog.VCX
Updated: C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkrprog.vc2
Error: In directory 'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY'
Error: Can't move 'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkrprog.VCT.tmp' to
'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkrprog.VCT': Access denied.

The folder KNIHOVNY is locked, I have to do "cleanup" operation, which
can't succeed:

Subversion reported an error while doing a cleanup!
In directory 'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY'
Can't copy
'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\.svn\tmp\text-base\jkr_fa.VCT.svn-base' to
'C:\MyFolder\KNIHOVNY\jkr_fa.VCT.2.tmp': File does not exists.

The other way is:
- manually delete .svn\lock file, all tmp files from KNIHOVNY directory
and log files
- when I do SVN update again, I have got error:

Error: Checksum mismatch for
expected: '22b5273978e36061a5545c88e34607ac', actual:
Error: Try a "Cleanup". If that doesn't work you need to do a fresh

That is, because text-base of that files has already changed to the
newest revision, but ".svn\entries" file was not saved when update
interrupted or there is no update of the file until successful update

I have tried to update to earlier revisions of that files, but this is
not still correct, checksum has another wrong numbers.

SVN command does the same thing, as TortoiseSVN (I have tried it), but we
use only TortoiseSVN - that's why I am posting it to this forum.

Please, help. Fresh checkout is not right solution for everyday use ...
