locked working copy help please

Hi all this might be a little long sorry ..
Using Subervion 1.3.1 with apache 2.0.58 on linux as main users access
point.

As an experiment I have the /etc directory as a live working copy that is
committed weekly with cronjob. Running now for about 8 weeks.
Last week though postfix was deleted and re-installed i.e. somebody did
rm -rf /etc/postfix
The weekly commit then failed with message:-
---------------
un Sep 17 03:20:01 BST 2006
svn: 'postfix' is not a working copy directory
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for
details)
svn: Working copy '/etc' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for
details)
---------------

Problem is how to unlock the working copy so that the new postfix dir can
be added or imported?
---------------
# cd /etc
# svn status | grep L
  L .

# svn cleanup .
svn: 'postfix' is not a working copy directory

Using the URL method:-
 # svn unlock --force http://hostname:8080/repos/etc
svn: Failed to fetch lock information: 404 Not Found
(http://hostname:8080)

There is no lock at the repos end
svnadmin lslocks repos/path returns nothing.

Do I have to temporarily remove the postfix dir then do the cleanup and
re-import postfix or add it?
{ I should add this is not a production mail server so would be no problem
doing above]

thanks
Oliver
