Windows 7 entries file locking

From the TortoiseSVN lists:

A few people have raised this: a check-out on Windows 7 often fails
because entries is unreadable. This is caused by antivirus software and/or
Windows indexing services competing for file locks. It's fairly easy to
reproduce with a large repository on Windows 7 if you have antivirus
software and are checking out into an indexed folder.

Obviously those of us in a corporate environment don't have the option
of disabling our antivirus software.

Is it possible to keep entries open with exclusive access for the
duration of the move from tmp/entries to entries?
