There are several possibilities here:
* do you have a file that's 'locked' inside the folder?
* is the destination folder from a different repository than the
original one?
* or your working copy is corrupted. A cleanup usually can't fix that,
so in that case your only option is to delete those folders and run an
update on the parent folder to get them back (make a copy first if you
have local changes).

Yes, this is a known problem.
Do me a favor: send a mail to feedback at tigris.org and complain about
this. Maybe if more people complain, they might finally DO something
about that - at least improve the message you get...
(yes, they know about the problem, it was reported before, but it seems
they don't consider it a priority to fix it)
