Timeout errors setting user space permissions

Have Alfresco 3 installed and loaded with content for one of our customers. Some of the spaces have deeply nested folders with lots of documents. I am now trying to set the permissions for the folders which requires that I first uncheck the Inherit Permissions option. When I do this on a folder without many subfolders or documents it works find and quickly. But, on a higher level on folders with lots of subfolders and/or documents, it goes for awhile (sometime ~30 mins or more) and then returns the error:

A system error happened during the operation: could not update: [org.alfresco.repo.domain.hibernate.NodeImpl#479]

with the trailing number being different with each attempt. From the alfresco.log file:

16:02:55,687 ERROR [org.alfresco.web.ui.common.Utils] A system error happened during the operation: could not update: [org.alfresco.repo.domain.hibernate.NodeImpl#477]

This is using a MySQL database (local on the Alfresco server).

Is there a solution to this or a workaround in the form, possibly, of an SQL query that can be run on the database tables to update the permissions there outside of the admin web interface?
