There is a contrib python script that can help:
Or, if you are using tortoiseSVN, use the repo-browser, set the
revision to the one prior to where the file was deleted and select
the file and select "break lock".
Zombie locks occur when a file that has been "locked" is deleted.
(And svn does not unlock it when it is committed.)
