Well I don't think you can avoid the corruption if multiple users are
working on the on the same working copy at the same time. I think you need
to look at this from a different angle.

Someone has already suggested having your customer access the repository
directly through webdav.

If the only purpose is to share the information with the customer then you
could have a task that monitors the repository and exports the current
release version to the customer share automatically. It would take a
little bit of scripting work but I think it has other advantages besides
avoiding the working copy corruption.
