I think it's really unfortunate that this will not get implemented for
1.6. I kind of understand the developers not wanting to make a big
change right before release, or else we'd end up with the types of
problems we've had with svn-merge property.

On the other hand, all this locking/unlocking really slows down large
workspaces. Is there anything we can do on the client side to overcome
this issue?

Is there a reason this is only a problem on windows and not *nix?
Perhaps something can still be done to make things a bit faster. For
example, I think Tortoise and Subclipse use a different order for
creating/removing lock files. Perhaps that speed things up a bit? What
about block size on the filesystem - does that have any effect?

Maybe there is a way to defrag the filesystem such that the creation of
these files takes less time? Put all folders together or something?

Just throwing things out there.
