problems updating a single file

Hello all. I have a problem that I'm hoping the user community can help
me with. There is one particular file that never cleanly updates.
Every time I try to perform an 'update' command on one of it's parent
directories, I get a 'Access is denied' error. The only way that I can
update that directory is to delete it, perform a cleanup, and then
perform an update again.

Why might this be happening? One possible reason is that there is a
process currently running that is accessing the file. Or, on windows
systems, just having a browser open to that directory can cause delete
errors. However, I don't believe that I have any processes holding on
to the file (I've already shut down the database engine that uses it)
and no browsers open. I can repeat this problem just after bootup.

Any other suggestions as to why SVN can't update this file?

I've included a transcript of what I have to do every time I want to do
an update on this system.

I'm using SVN 1.0.0, using the command-line client, on a Windows 2000
with all service packs installed, and cygwin bash shell.
