SVN DB Lock?

SVN 1.04 (r9844) on Windows 2000

I was attempting to move a versioned file (called .start) from one URL to
another using the following command (some path information omitted for

svn move file:///k:/subversion/...../first/.start

The client-side svn application crashed, and now svn is unusable. By
this, I mean that I cannot call any repository commands for my projects.
For instance, the command 'svn list file:///k:/subversion/someproject'
simply hangs indefinitely. In looking at the db files, I see a file
__db.001 that has a modification timestamp about the time that I attempted
the move. I had no trouble moving a directory using svn move.

Any ideas about whether my repository can be fixed? It would be a pretty
major bummer to lose all of this code...
