problems commiting sub dir

hi there i've recently created a new svn repositry, i checked out my new
repositry, i've worked on my files now i want to commit them.
however, i want to only commit on dir of it, so i cd to the dir i want

%svn commit -m "update"
svn: Working copy '/usr/home/timothy/Projects/PubWare/trunk/package' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)
%svn cleanup
svn: 'dist' is not a working copy directory

and around it goes.
dist IS a working copy, i can check it out of the repositry. note that
i ran clean up after orginally getting the error "dist is missing or not
locked" and now the problem has shifted to what you see above.

so i have finally figured out what the problem is, i deleted the .svn
dir out of there by accident. I have another working copy in a different
dir, i just copied the .svn dir form that to this one and it worked,
however, am i causing myself problems doing this? the other working copy
was totally virgin, it was checked out and never touched. so my only
concern would be that the .svn reffers to the repositry's parent dir (
which would be different )

aside from that, there doesn't appear to be any problems now, it
commited the changes without a hitch, correct revision number etc.
