Okay I see. I would have thought that even if it locks the whole
tree it only does so downward-recursively, since the repository
tree could be checked out with dir2 as the root of the working
copy.

Anyway it sounds like even when this bug is fixed, which
directories are locked may not always be apparent. If so the
error message for locked directories should specify which
directory is locked, or the error message could say "run 'svn
cleanup' in root of working copy".

Or: svn cleanup could itself cleanup the entire working copy tree
(starting at root).
