Filesystem corruption with 1.6.6, Build 1749 x64 and virus scanners

I'm running TortoiseSVN 1.6.6, Build 1749 x64 on a Windows 7 x64
system, accessing a remote repository via ssh+svn. If I have a virus
scanner running, I sometimes have problems updating or checking in
files and find entries in the event log saying "The file system
structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable." The physical hardware
seems to pass all diagnostics I've thrown at it, furthermore if I
remove any virus scanner everything seems fine. I've tried with Mcafee
Virusscan Enterprise, Kaspersky and Microsoft Security Essentials and
all three show this behaviour, even if they are set to ignore the
Tortoise executables and/or my trunk. Also, there are a few reports on
the web about the same problem:

http://groups.google.com/group/tortoisesvn/browse_thread/thread/4d8bdcea4fd14fce?pli=1

Are there any virus scanners which don't cause this problem, or
perhaps settings I can make to my options to avoid this annoying
problem?

Many Thanks,

James
