Do you get a long pause (about 10 seconds) when it fails like this?

Subversion automatically retries many times when it hits these errors
before it finally gives up -- usually the cause is a 'helper'
application of some kind -- like a virus-scanner, indexer, etc. It
seems pretty unlikely that something (aside from a completely broken
tag-along) would hang onto files that long, though, unless it is a
really big file. How big is this entries file?
