Cleanup fails

Error is:
Subversion reported a problem while doing a cleanup!
Can't open directory 'C:\source\ETApp\dojo\src\storage\.svn\tmp': The
system cannot find the path specified.

The directory C:\source\ETApp\dojo\src\storage\.svn exists, it just
doesn't have a tmp directory within it. If I put in a tmp directory,
then the cleanup gets past that directory, but gives the same error for
the next directory.

I would have thought that TortoiseSVN could create the tmp directory
automatically? I recall one time manually adding in the few missing tmp
directories and then being able to get the cleanup to work - so it would
be nice if the cleanup did add the tmp directories! Now there are too
many directories for me to do it manually.



FYI: I need to do a cleanup because I am getting a lock error of some
kind. I am unsure of the cause of that, it used to happen occasionally
even when all I did was update to head for dojo. I am not sure why I get
this error, but it happens about once every month, and has happened for
months (with different versions of TortoiseSVN, and also on a different
PC). The cleanup always fails with the same fault. I don't get any other
problems on my PC that might indicate a hardware, OS or other cause. I
am going to do a clean checkout again which seems to fix the initial
