Problem ressurectiing a project trunk

I'm having a problem resurecting a directory that was mistakenly deleted.
At rev 483, the project "short-courses" is in my repository, with branches,
tags and trunk subdirectories.

  + branches
  + tags
  + trunk

Somehow, the trunk got deleted in the next revision. No changes have been
committed since then.

Rev484 (HEAD):
  + branches
  + tags

Looking at the book [0], copying the trunk from the previous revision looks
like the way to go, but svn tells me the working copy is locked - even
though it's a fresh checkout. Here's what happens:

-----------EXAMPLE START-----------

BalchD@rowlf /cygdrive/d/wc
$ svn co svn://bongo/subversion/short-courses short-courses
Checked out revision 484.

BalchD@rowlf /cygdrive/d/wc
$ cd short-courses

BalchD@rowlf /cygdrive/d/wc/short-courses
$ svn cp -r483 svn://bongo/subversion/short-courses/trunk ./trunk
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)

-----------EXAMPLE END-----------

At this point it has created a "trunk" directory, but isn't sure whether
it's in ther repository or not:

-----------EXAMPLE START-----------

BalchD@rowlf /cygdrive/d/wc/short-courses
$ svn info trunk/
Path: trunk
URL: svn://bongo/subversion/short-courses/trunk
Repository UUID: 40e514c9-7dcd-b44f-87da-b444ffc43b05
Revision: 483
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal

BalchD@rowlf /cygdrive/d/wc/short-courses
$ svn st trunk/
? trunk

-----------EXAMPLE END-----------

Any ideas why this isn't working?

I'm using Subversion 1.0.9 via Cygwin on WinXP SP2
