If the working copy is locked and cleanup won't fix it then I'm afraid
it needs a fresh checkout. Did you get this WC by upgrading a 1.6 WC?
If so you may find a fresh checkout better as the upgrade process is
not as good as it could be. If not then you should report this on the
subversion users mailing list as it is a problem inside the subversion
library.

Release lock is about a different sort of lock, i.e. gettign a lock in
the repository to prevent others from committing. The locked WC is
talking about local locks (like filesystem locks) to ensure WC
integrity. It's a somewhat overloaded term in Subversion and
frequently causes this confusion.

PS. Please quote some context in your replies.
