case problems under Windows

Hi all,
        I'm afraid I have really screwed up my repository. It seems that,
through a series of misadventures with the rename command, I have two
copies of a directory in the repository with names that differ only by
case. The directory is called mrt. Here are the symptoms:

If I edit mrt/conf.h, svn status shows:
M mrt\Conf.h
    S MRT
M MRT\Conf.h

If I execute svn ls, it only shows /mrt.
If I execute svn log, I can get information on /mrt but not /MRT.
Svn delete on /MRT says that it doesn't exist.
If I delete the /mrt folder and check it out again from scratch, then the
next time I try to do anything, it says the working copy 'mrt' is locked.
There's no lock file in the .svn directory though. If I try to use svn
cleanup to fix it, I get this:
svn: Can't set file 'MRT/controls/.svn/lock' read-write: The system cannot
find the file specified.

Using the repo-browser in Tortoise and such still only shows the /mrt
directory. I have browsed this list for case problems and found a couple
threads, but I didn't find anything that would solve this problem. Any
help would be greatly appreciated!
