Quoting Stefan from a Mail on dev@ three days ago:

The problem is with TrueCrypt: it doesn't send the WM_DEVICECHANGE
message before it tries to unmount. And this message is required,
because apps (like the TSVN cache) which need to have a handle open on
drives can react to the message and release the handle.
But since TrueCrypt doesn't send this message, how should TSVN (or any
other app which needs this) know to close all open handles?

Please report this to the TrueCrypt guys. The bug is in their app, they
have to deal with it.
