Update, cleanup, and tmp folders

Ok, I don't know if this is a SVN issue or a TSVN issue, but:

One of my coworkers recently upgraded to TSVN 1.4.0 and checked out a
whole new working copy.

Soon afterwards, updates started to fail, requesting that they do a
cleanup. However each time a cleanup is attempted, it fails with the
message "Cannot create directory '......path to somewhere
random...\.svn\tmp': Access is denied".

Problem 1: the path is frequently elided, and it's not selectable or
copyable, so sometimes you have no idea what specific folder it's
talking about.

Problem 2: going to the specified folder and creating the missing tmp
folder works fine, and the subsequent cleanup doesn't report any
problems there any more. But this sort of thing happens a lot:

   cleanup in S:\a: failed on S:\a\b\c\.svn\tmp
   create folder S:\a\b\c\.svn\tmp
   cleanup in S:\a: failed on S:\a\d\.svn\tmp
   create folder S:\a\d\.svn\tmp
   cleanup in S:\a: succeeded
   cleanup in S:\: failed on S:\a\e\.svn\tmp

(yep, it failed in the same folder as it previously succeeded in. WTF?)
(and yes, S: is a SUBSTed drive, if that's important)

There is a virus checker running, but it's been excluded from both S:
and the path on C: that S: points to. Disabling it completely doesn't
make any difference. The Indexing Service is not enabled. I can't
think of any other culprits that are likely to cause grief here.
