The Most Peculiar Problem Ever: tempfile.tmp

From: Nicholas Sloan <nsloan.svn_at_gmail.com>

I have 3 repos on a local hard drive, each under the parent directory C:\svn
(so C:\svn\repoA and so on...). I have created multiple working copies for
each.

repoA's working copy (wcA1) works fine under any circumstances

repoB's and repoC's working copies (wcB1 and wcC1) work normally on local
hard drives.

wcB1 and wcC1 however, will not update if there is a file conflict, giving
the error: "Can't open '...\_svn\tmp\tempfile.tmp': Access is denied." when
the working copies exist on a networked drive.

I have experienced the same problem without the asp.net hack enabled. I have
looked at every setting I can find, in Windows, Novell NetWare, and
subversion, and cannot find a difference between repoA and the others. I
have also created many instances of working copies from each repo on local
drives and network drives (ie. wcA2, wcB2, wcC2 and every instance of wcA
works, and every copy of wcB or wcC fails on a network drive. Being that
every instance of each working copy that I create exhibits the same symptoms
as the first instance of each working copy, I can only assume that the
problem is related to the repositories somehow, but I can't figure out how
or why.

If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
