The following workaround originally posted by Stefan should work:

Unfortunately, you need the svn client to recover from this:
svn unlock --force url/to/nonexisting/file

see http://svn.haxx.se/tsvnusers/archive-2006-08/0074.shtml

I'd prefer not implementing a workaround in TortoiseSVN since the problem
can be solved with the command line client and is not that common.
