Please help - Re: Hang on commit

Could somebody please try to explain this, it's driving me nuts. Every time I
commit now, SVN hangs on "Transmitting file data", then I have to break out by
forcibly closing the DOS box (CTRL-C doesn't work), then run svn cleanup and svn
up, and if I'm lucky I'm left with a viable working copy. But on the next
commit, it's back to square one, even from a totally different working copy.
What's up here?
