Unfortunately SVN's use of the word 'lock' is ambiguous and can refer
to working copy locks which you apply yourself to prevent others from
committing file(s) to the repository, or the OS file locking mechanism
which is used under the hood by SVN. In this case it's the latter. You
need to run SVN cleanup.
