If you interrupt the running of a log file, then the lock on that
directory cannot be removed. You will need to run 'svn cleanup' to
rerun the log file and remove the lock. A log file is a file called
"log" in the .svn directory, if it does not exist then a pool cleanup
handler should remove the lock.
