Mechanics of svn locking in fsfs

I'm having some issues related to svn lock/unlock - they are taking
forever.

svn lock file://<path to repos file>

Yesterday I killed some svnserve processes and that seemed to fix it,
but it is happening again today.

While trying to debug this I found several files in the db/locks area
that were over 800Kb in size. I thought this was odd, but wanted to
check here before doing anything drastic.

They all follow this format:
K 8
children
V 857142
c890a1b6f7765541522d505e05ad6095
2f0d97a205892f65a31b656bb9bf4d2f
bf47b434373095b971364c8a504884ab
 [...]
34f83077882f483d982f8049dd46b08c
5c69906b44594cdc0877948c65a49dcd

END

Clearly these are references to other existing locks - I assume these
are normal? Could there be something else that is causing extremely
long lock/unlock times?

Thanks,

Eric
