Missing .svn/tmp file after CTRL-C

At the top level of our working copy we did

svn update <one-file>

Our repository is kinda very large. Apparently even though the update
was for only one file, it is going through the entire WC, as it is
taking a huge amount of time to just this one update.
At some point of time, we did a CTRL-C and interrupted the svn update.
After this, the WC seems to have gotten corrupted. It keeps telling me
that the working copy is locked and asked to do a 'svn cleanup'. But
svn cleanup gives the following error

svn: Can't open directory '<somedir>/.svn/tmp': No such file or directory

The <somedir>/.svn did not have the tmp directory and just so that I
can somehow proceed, I created that directory. So it goes beyond that
and gives the same error for the next directory, and the next and so
on. Obviously for a size of WC we have, we can not create tmp
directories everywhere. Is there any way we can get out of this? The
WC has several local changes and so its not that useful to checkout a
new WC.

I would grately appreciate it if you can suggest some workarounds.
