Working copy ... not locked error

Hello,

 

I have a Working copy not locked problem. I haven't found any posts
that have the same symptoms.

 

To start, have a folder named docs\xml in my repository.

I used to have a folder name docs\xml\Tags that was automatically
generated in my working copy.

I set the svn:ignore property on docs\xml to include the Tags folder.

 

At some point, we decided not to generate the Tags folder anymore. So I
did an svn add docs\xml\Tags

I also added a file called docs\xml\Tags\Tags.xml

 

Then I deleted Tags from the svn:ignore property of the docs\xml folder.

 

 

Now, when I do fresh checkout of the docs folder, everything is great
... for a short time. After a few updates, eventually I'll get the
error message:

 

svn: Working copy 'docs/xml/Tags' not locked

 

and my update will fail. I have to delete the xml folder to do the
update.

 

any ideas what the problem could be?

 

thanks,

 

-petri
