Svn Checkout is Failing

            I'm running into an issue. Occasionally, subversion fails
during a checkout with an error such as "Can't move
'working\path\to\.svn\tmp\entries' to 'working\path\to\.svn\entries':
Access is denied." E.g.:


Normally using an update will fix the problem. However, I've been
consistently running into the following. When I try to execute an
update on the "working\path\to", I receive the following error message
"Working copy 'working\path\to' locked. Please execute the "cleanup"
command. E.g.:



NOTE: In between these 2 steps, I discovered a suggestion to exclude the
working directory from a virus scanner, so that the paths in the
screenshots don't line up. I basically restarted with a working
directory of 'C:\Projrect\DDN Source'


When I execute the cleanup command, it says:

Can't open directory 'working\path\to'. Access is denied. E.g.:



Why is the directory locked? Why is access denied to the cleanup
command? How should I proceed? Thanks.


My System Information is as follows:

Windows XP

TortoiseSVN 1.4.8, Build 12137 - 32 Bit , 2008/02/16 11:09:38

Subversion 1.4.6,

The subversion repository is 1.4.4 using apache over https for read-only
checkouts and for secure commits.
