Same thing - how long is the path to that temp file (and the folder
containing it)?

You're looking at a Windows limitation. You need to either:
A) Reorganize your project/rename items to shorten the path
B) Check out several WCs from "deeper" in the project's structure in
the repository so that you have shorter paths.

I have been trying to do a commit but keep getting an error message that a file can't be opened/can't be found. I checked the file that Tortoise can't find/open and it does exist and doesn't look any different from other files that are committed with a problem. I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.6.3, Build 16613.
