Hmm. Ok. I suppose it *MIGHT* be that I pressed Ctrl-C sometime. How
does svn handle that (if at all)? Since I'm accessing the repository
directly (not through WebDAV), if svn does not handle the signal I
suppose that would explain why the lock was not removed.

(If I did press Ctrl-C that is, I dunno.)
