[thelist] [subversion] working copy locking with images and .swf files

Hi all,


Anyone had a problem with subversion where it locks your working copy
when checking in images and .swf's? The lock is kind of 'fatal' in that
sometimes cleanup won't work and you have to blow away your working copy
and re checkout the repository data...


We're running subversion on Centos and intermittently get permission
denied errors when subversion tries to move prop-base files relating to
images / swf's.


It's a weird error that I haven't seen - I've checked file level
permissions, but it doesn't seem to be related to that.


Any advice appreciated.
