You have hit a check I recently added to the working copy code. It's
not supposed to fail, I don't know of any way to make it happen. It's
a client problem and it occurs while releasing working copy locks.
Releasing working copy locks is usually one of the last things the
client does, so it is likely that the command was "complete".

Perhaps it's too late now, but I'd like to know how you triggered it.
Do you know the status of trunk/projects and branches/test-branch
before the copy? What about after the copy? If you run 'svn st' and
you see lines containing 'L' that indicates directories that are still
locked. You need to run 'svn cleanup' to remove such locks. Before
you do that please look in the .svn directory of the locked directory
to see if there is a file called "log", and if so report what it
