Can you reproduce this reliably?
If yes, then you are probably exceeding the maximum path length of 260
characters. You could try to checkout into a directory further up in your
directory structure to prevent this.
If no, then it's probably a virus scanner which is locking the files. Try to
deactivate it.

This change would need to be made in the subversion library, not
TortoiseSVN. But this would first need a concept how to report to the user
that the working copy is not complete.
