Updating locked binary files while they are opend by some app on windows?

I could not find an answer to my question in the mail archive, but a similar issue in the Tortoise-list, telling me to it post here, so here it is :-)

We are using the latest svn-serve via apache on an ubuntu-server and use tortoiseSVN-latest as the client on WindowsXP.

The repo contains only binary files, snv:need-lock is set everywhere.
When i check out the files, they are automatically locked and read-only locally.
If i open a few of them (read-only) and then do a svn-update, this fails, creating a bunch of temp files. I need to clean up the archive, close all other software that opened files read only and do the update again. This works, but ideally, i would prefer to tell my program that i can reopen all files readonly, that may have changed during the svn-update.
Is there a way that SVN can lock the files on windows, such that an update does not fail, even if the files were opened by some app?

Thanks for your suggestions,
