Tortoise SVN pops up a dialog with that message (attached) and, yes, it
provides only the path given in the cleanup command, not the path to the
problem file.

They did not say this message comes out of SVN: it is probably one of their
own error strings. What they said is that SVN does not provide an accurate
diagnostic, forcing them to post this rather uninformative message instead.

It's totally reproducible: mess up the permissions of a .svn tree to keep
the SVN client (Tortoise in this case) out of it and then request a cleanup
of the directory just above that .svn tree: it will fail.
