Rolling Back Changes

I was shocked to find out that most of the files in a directory of my
project mysteriously disappeared in revision 53. So I tried this:

$ svn copy file:///path/to/repository/subdir/English.lproj/ . -r 52
svn: Attempted to lock an already-locked dir
svn: working copy locked: .
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for

I can't even figure out why the files disappeared in the first place,
but I do know that Subversion is entirely to blame. Here is some more
text from my terminal:

Updated to revision 52.
$ ls
English.lproj/ Hammer.icns Level.icns MaraLevel2D.nib/
$ svn rm MaraLevel2D.nib/
D MaraLevel2D.nib/objects.nib
D MaraLevel2D.nib/info.nib
D MaraLevel2D.nib/classes.nib
D MaraLevel2D.nib
$ svn ci -m 'Temporary.'
Replacing Resources

Committed revision 53.

I'm using subversion 0.33.0. What's with the 'Replacing Resources'?
(Resources is the directory that the files disappeared from.)

On a side note, it's really ugly working with nib files in subversion.
When I want to change a nib file, I have to move .svn directories
around. It would be nice if subversion were smart enough not to put
.svn directories in nib files or other such places. This is really
important for Mac OS X developers, I'd rather have no move command than
have such poor handling of nib files.

On a side, side note... I couldn't find a link to subscribe to this
list on the project page. I guessed the email address for subscribing.
