Help Recovering Directory

From: Andrew n marshall <amarshal_at_ISI.EDU>

A user accidentally deleted and committed a project src directory. I
pointed him to the chapter 4.3 on resurrecting deleted items. For some
reason he couldn't get it working, and before I knew what happened, the
other users had exported and re-added another copy of the project.

I've since been trying ot fix the mess. I've cleared old tranactions
(which I think were the problem with the first resurrection), but now
everytime I
    svn copy -r 930 svn://.../src .
I get:
    svn: Working copy '.' locked
    svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for
leaving just src drectory and no contents. Looking at svnadmin lstxns,
I see nothing. If I call cleanup and repeat on the next directory down,
the same thing happens, apparently forcing me to manually recurse. And
of course URLs don't take wildcards, so this repeats per file as well.

I assume this is not what is supposed to happen. What might be the
problem and how can I fix it?

Secondly, what are the side effects of not connecting histories of the
old src to the exported/re-added copy? Is there a way for me to easily
append each revision of this new pseudo-branch to the original change
history of src (once I fix it)?
