[TSVN] Problem with Lock on a deleted file

From: Schmidt, Maik <Maik.Schmidt_at_mahr.de>

We are using TSVN in version 1.2.1 build 3895 to access a FSFS-repository on LAN without any server.
We have a student apprentice who programs some small tools for us using Microsoft Visual Studio and put the source code into our repository manually using TSVN - so no integration of TSVN into the Visual Studio. We are using the lock-function.

There is one of the files VC++ generates during the build process - "something.ilk". He has first managed to add this stupid file to the repository, then delete this file during revision number 362 BUT the file seems to have still a lock onto itself. When I tried to delete some directories of the project from our repository which I do not wanted to be under version management INCLUDING the folder this file is in I got the following error:

Deleting: C:\localfolder\PATH1\Debug
Error: Übertragen fehlgeschlagen (Details folgen):
Error: Kann Sperre für Pfad '/head revision/projectpath/toolpath/PATH1/Debug/converter.ilk'
Error: nicht prüfen; keine entsprechende Sperrmarke verfügbar
Error: If you want to break the lock, use the "Check For Modifications" dialog.

I set the language to English, but somehow the error message was still presented in German mostly. The translation must be something like this:
Deleting: C:\localfolder\PATH1\Debug
Error: transmission failed (details follow):
Error: Cannot check lock for path '/head revision/projectpath/toolpath/PATH1/Debug/converter.ilk'
Error: no lock available
Error: If you want to break the lock, use the "Check For Modifications" dialog.

Can someone help me how to undo the damage? I just do not know what he has done and how to undo it. x_X
For me it just seems like the lock is still on the file but the file has gone.
