I can rename through the file system and the only lock reported is by
Windows Explorer itself. After a closer look, the error is being
reported in a .svn subdirectory of the *new* "server" directory. Not
in the old one. Wouldn't that indicate that the process itself is
locking the file in such a way that it can't read it? That seems
really strange and counterintuitive to me.

Anyway, I know this is no longer a TSVN problem, but I appreciate the feedback.
