My working copy is "locked"?

Hi, I can no longer commit or update changes to a certain folder in my repository with TortoiseSVN (1.6.5, Build 16974).

I think the trouble started when I moved a folder from one place to another. Specifically I moved /Src/CompilerCore/Onep to /Src/CompilerCore/Abandoned/Onep using a right-drag and "SVN move versioned items here". While committing, I got an error that the "Onep" folder could not be deleted because it was not empty (apparently the repository had one more file than my working copy).

After that I could not use the Update or Commit commands, which said

Working copy 'D:\...\Src\CompilerCore' locked
Please execute the 'Cleanup' command.

But the 'Cleanup' command gives the error

Cleanup failed to process the following paths:
- 'D:\...\Src\CompilerCore'
In directory 'D:\...\Src\CompilerCore\Abandoned\Onep'
Error processing command 'committed' in 'D:\...\Src\CompilerCore\Abandoned\Onep'
Working copy 'D:\...\Src\CompilerCore\Abandoned\Onep' locked

(Argh, why doesn't Windows let you copy message box messages?)

Note that I am not using any subversion locks. So what should I do?
