Wouldn't be the first "odd" thing about such software. ;-)

I would first try to use Process Monitor to see activity in the file
system, one time with and the other time without Avast or in the
latter case at least with your working copy excluded for Avast. The
MoveFileEx error should be easy to find using ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND and
from that point you "just" need to scroll upwards to see if files are
renamed by Avast or such.

Avast will surely not modify Subversions code, but hook Windows
functions instead and that may be hard to debug. I found Process
Monitor really helpful in such cases, that's what it's designed for.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
