Well, this has failed because the external diff3 program has returned
the value 2. According to the Linux manpage

       An exit status of 0 means diff3 was successful, 1 means
       some conflicts were found, and 2 means trouble.

Can you get diff3 to work from the windows command line?

The 'svn cleanup' command is available to clean up locks, etc.
