That's not a locking *problem*. That is the svn libraries using locking to prevent you from destroying your repository by running
recovery whilst it is still in use.

There are several layers of lock.

1) Subversion repository locking.
2) BDB environment locking.
3) BDB data locking.

Here, you are observing level 1 functioning correctly.

When your repository is hanging, I believe the culprit is a stale lock at level 2.
