Probably a problem that has bitten me as well...
As long as any process still has 
a file open anywhere in the respective directory tree,
Repair can not set the filesystem 
to this "local-global-twin-view".

So, when after a while your repair works, 
some process has released a file in that tree.

I haven't tried, but could some sort 
of (maybe recursive ?) lsof on that volume
(or subtree) give a hint which processes 
should be terminated ?

So long,
