Can unlock and recover takes forever

I did a "svn update" and everything locked. I tried to "svn cleanup" to
no avail. Reading the website, I then tried "svnadmin recover my/repos"
it has now been displaying the message that it is recovering for the
last 15 minutes... I'm getting nervous...


Suppose that recover fails and that I have to manually stop the process.
What are the chances that I didn't destroy the repository? (I didn't
make a backup of the db if you are wondering).


Anyway, locking is very confusing when the only thing I was doing was
updating my repository. I don't see why it screwed my working copy
because someone else had an interruption or something. (just my feeling
on the subject)


Anyway, if you can bring me some hope and steps on how the recover the
database. It would be appreciated. I have to leave now, so I don't know
if it will be done within the hour...
