context used. The lock you're running into is a situation where the working
copy metadata is locked (for exclusive access by another update process,
the one you interrupted) and can't be touched. Try SVN Cleanup and see

There is nothing confidential here, and you addressed this email to a
public mailing list which is archived & searchable by Google on at least a
half-dozen sites, not to mention the inboxes of tens of thousands of
individuals. Lengthy disclaimers such as what follows (and I've trimmed)
are dubious at best from a legal perspective in the first place, and
utterly useless on a public mailing list.
