I'm going to guess: you have a directory above the classes directory
with a (hidden on Windows) directory called .svn. In that .svn
folder are files with entries indicating that the classes folder
should be "locked", but it's not because it's no longer in the
repository. Have you tried checking out the project from the
repository into a completely different/new location, then make a
trivial change (so you'll have something to check in), build
(generate the classes hierarchy), tell set svn:ignore on classes &
then commit? If that works, then you could check in any actual
changes you've made from your parent directory, then start over with
a new working copy (i'e', delete the workiing copy folder & check the
project out again).

Hope this helps.

Sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable
from irony.
