Here's my tip: I had this problem (or one very much like it) when I
first started using TortoiseSVN... ultimately, all I had to do was to
kill the cache process [TSVNCache.exe] once, and everything has been
fine since (it gets restarted automagically as needed).

This is also on XP (SP2), but with the 1.4 RC versions of SVN and TSVN.
