wedged working copies

I'm getting wedged working copies.

I'm not completely sure whether it's isolated to windows working
copies that are accessed by a windows share or not, but I think that's
the main problem scenario. However, I have advised developers not to
access the WC in this manner, but am still having this sort of
problem. Instead of having developers access the remote working copies
via network share, I have a scheduled job that runs on the remote
servers (which host the working copies), which issues a cleanup, then
an update, every 3 minutes.

After a while, the updater scheduled job fails, because the the WC is wedged.

Once the working copy gets wedged, I RDP into the machine and attempt
a local cleanup, which gives me messages like:

"can't open directory [blah\blah\blah\].svn\tmp"
"the system cannot find the path specified"

The only way I've found to fix these sorts of problems is to remove
the offending parent directories (from the file system) until I can
get a successful cleanup, then I update to get the files back.

Can anyone shed any light?
