SVNSYNC: Locked file on deleted branch with svnsync

Please Help!

Windows 2003 R2
Subversion 1.4.2

RedHat Enterprise Linux 4
Subversion 1.5.0-23022

I seem to have a locked file on a deleted branch in our
13000+ revision 9.9GB production repository.

I'm trying to do a svnsync to the mirror server and get:
svnsync: User svnsync does not own lock on path
(currently locked by 'myusername')
when I try to initiate the sync from the master server (like I've been
doing for a month).

What is wierd is that "svnadmin lslocks /path/to/Repository" doesn't list
any locks on the repository.

I looked in db/locks and found some directories there with files with long
hash-like numbers but when I looked at the contents of those files I
couldn't see anything that matched a file or user name (just more encoded
hash or something).

I'm not too worried about breaking any locks that users have, there
shouldn't be any users that it would inconvenience too much to break their

Can I just delete all the directories in the db/locks directory to get
around the problem or will this be causing a greater problem?

I'm not sure why I'm not showing any locks listed with "svnadmin lslocks".

Is this a problem with the current svnsync that needs to be addressed?


If this needs to go to the user list I can do that, just thought it might
be appropriate for this list because of the new "svnsync" for 1.5.0.
