Subversion and Windows 98 SE

I've just installed Subversion (latest version) on an almost naked
Windows 98 SE system. I added the APR_ICONV_PATH environment variable
and rebooted. I created a repository like this:

svnadmin create c:\svnrepos --fs-type fsfs

which worked properly.

Then I tried to check out from this freshly created repository. Like

svn co file:///c:/svnrepos

I get the following error messages:

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///c:/svnrepos'
svn: Can't get shared lock on file 'c:/svnrepos/locks/db.lock': the
process is unable to access the file, because another process locked
part of the file (error message roughly translated from German)

Perhaps these error occur because subversion uses '/' as a directory
separator. While this works perfectly under NT/2000/XP, Windows 98
might have some problems with this.

Any ideas?
