To be serious again: The idea of copying the whole Perl stuff needed
for running tlmgr looks like a good idea IMHO.  It still would mean
shuffling around a few Megabytes, but it would elegantly avoid the
file locking problems.  In other words, a Windows user should have to
execute a batch file like this if clicking on the tlmgr icon:

  <set up environment variables>
  cpdir <tlmgrdir> <tlmgrdir-temp>

[This is how little Werner sees the Windows world.]
