Annoying behavior with open binary files & update

We use visio to design our DB, which results in a binary file that we check in.
Most of the time I have visio open so I can reference the database when I'm
writing code. Sometimes when I do an update I forget to close visio and this
file has been changed by another developer. TSVN does not handle this case well
at all and pukes. Then I close visio and try to do the update again and get an
error telling me I need to do a cleanup, which rarely works. I usually have to
checkout the entire repository again, which is super annoying if I have made a
bunch of changes, and especially if changes have been made by others in the
files I was working on, meaning I have to merge the files manually. There must
be a better way to handle this...such as checking if the file can be moved
before actually moving it perhaps?
