The error message was "no longer a directory"

    sb@wopr-mobile:/usr/src/subversion> svn up
    svn: Obstructed update
    svn: The entry 'ac-helpers' is no longer a directory,
    which prevents proper updates.
    Please remove this entry and try updating again.

and I can only generate that error if ac-helpers is a file.

It's not supposed to leave a lock unless there are log files present,
and would expect the "no longer a directory" error to get generated
before any log files get created.

Is there a file .svn/log? If so, what does it contain?
Is there a file ac-helpers/.svn/log? If so, what does it contain?

Which version of Subversion are you using? Did you build it yourself?
Do the regression tests pass?

That should not happen either. Can you print a stack trace:

$ gdb /path/to/svn
(gdb) r cleanup
(gdb) bt
