Are you using the native Win32 client or cygwin? AFAIK, the cygwin
client doesn't include the workaround code. Which clients actually
get the error and are they built using the native libraries or cygwin
libraries or something else? Could there really be other processes
holding onto the files (editors, etc.)?

The workaround code basically waits and retries for around 10 seconds
per file -- that's quite a long time to wait for tag-alongs to finish
whatever they were doing with each file.

Also, you shouldn't have a broken tree afterwards. You should be able
to retry the operation. If you are getting broken working copies,
then please mail a good reproduction recipe to the dev list -- that's
a bug.
