Ryan, this response will seem unhelpful, but in the long run you'll be
glad (I hope):

To help us help you, you need to give more information. Starting with
basic stuff, like: what version of Subversion are you using? What
version initially created your repository? What access method were
you using when you cancelled the checkout? How did you compile
Subversion -- what version of Berkeley DB did you use? Any
information you can think of.

Beyond that, an 'ls -laR' of your repository would help, so we can see
ownership and permissions, and we need to know what user ran the

Please read the BUGS file in the top level of the Subversion
distribution, it is a detailed guide to effective bug reporting.

By the way, please don't cross-post this sort of thing to the dev@
list. It really belongs on users@, at least initially. (No big deal,
just mentioning it for next time. We try to save the dev@ list for
actual development discussion.)
