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?

I tried removing the whole trunk directory, and emptied the recycling bin. Updating restored everything in trunk/ that had been there before (not some directories in trunk/.transfer your modding stuff here, one of which had the Excel file I originally mentioned) and the lock is back.
