svn copy weird failure

Hi folks,

I got the following error while using svn copy to tag the current version of my working copy. Both server and client are running on Win XP sp2.

svn copy . file:///I:/Repositories/EGP0003/tags/v2
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't remove 'I:\Repositories\EGP0003\db\transactions\23-1.txn\node._74._0.children'
svn: Can't remove file 'I:\Repositories\EGP0003\db\transactions\23-1.txn\node._74._0.children': The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

As clearly shown in the above message, something fails. However, the tagged version is created into the repository.
    -> I would expect the tagged version not to be created given the failure. Would you rely on the tagged stuff?

It looks like the failure occurs when svn tries to delete the transaction files from the database. For some reason, XP refuses to grant svn with the permission to delete the files. This is an IT issue as all that stuff has been working for a while.
    -> Did you ever experienced such a problem and if so, what was the cause?

Any help appreciated!
