Some time ago I had an Excel spreadsheet in the project open in Open Office Calc, and the program shut down improperly and I did not recover the spreadsheet next time I started up Open Office. Ever since Tortoise SVN has thrown a working copy status error when I update my local repository on the machine this happened on. Using the cleanup function has no effect. I've tried creating a new repository in a new folder and deleting the old one, but the status continues. Any ideas on how to fix this?

This is what I get:

C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin>svn update "c:\Users\richv_000\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod\Lux Invicta Repository"
Updating 'C:\Users\richv_000\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod\Lux Invicta Repository':
Skipped 'C:\Users\richv_000\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod\Lux Invicta Repository\trunk' -- An obstructing working copy was found
At revision 1606.
Summary of conflicts:
  Skipped paths: 1

Trying to create a new repository in a folder directly off C:\ results in a locked directory that won't clean up.
