Oh, sorry. On the master repository. I just checked, and the slave
repository has a whole lot more directorieses in the db/locks directory
than the master (which again is strange) and when I did the "svnadmin
lslocks /path/to/repository" on the slave it listed all the locked files.

True. But sometimes if you know and understand what you are doing then
it is OK. In this case it doesn't seem to be good to mess around with
that stuff.
