update locking unrelated parent directory

I have a scenario where I can't update a working copy while an update on an
unrelated other working copy is in progress. The directory structure looks
like this:

      foo-test-1 *
      foo-test-2 *

Now, what makes this special is that in the repository, the marked foo-test
directories don't exist. These directories are just file-system copies of foo
which I made in order to do some tests while keeping the relation to lib_bar.
Theoretically, they should be independent roots of separate WCs, right?
However, while running update on either foo-test, it seems that the projects
root dir is locked, so I can't update the rest. However, I can update both
foo-test WCs in parallel.

Also, I wonder how the new 1.7 WC format will affect me here. As far as I
know, the metadata is stored in just the root folder of the working copy
there, which means that a file-system copy of a subdir is not a working copy
on its own, which means I can't achieve the above by using a file-system copy
but have to do a separate checkout of the subdirectory, rigth?

I also thought about using a local never-committed copy, which I would then
switch back to the original dir:

  svn cp foo foo-test
  svn switch $(REPOS)/projects/foo foo-test

This should even allow me to update all my folders by issuing an update on the
projects root folder. Well, at least it could, I don't know if it works, I'm
not even sure it should work.
