Was there an "Access is denied" message as well? This looks like the
Subversion on Windows filesystem problem. Nobody appears able to
reproduce the problem outside Subversion, which makes it difficult to
fix. There was a patch to retry operations that fail, but that is a
bit of a hack until we are sure about the root cause of the problem.

The error message you have given refers to the entries file, the
previous cleanup error referred to missing text base. Does the
entries error above lead to the original text base error when you
