Cleanup fails with

Hi,

I cannot get a clean working directory. My working copy was out of date and
I wanted to make an update. Here is the result:

bartosch@certa:/fs/data/bartosch/tcl/tdl> svn update
D netweight.tcl
D load_tla.tcl
D fast_tdl.tcl
svn: In directory '.'
svn: Error processing command 'delete-entry' in '.'
svn: Can't read directory 'parms/cu08/.svn/tmp': Unknown error 525

Now I have to cleanup the working copy, because it is locked. But I am not
able to do this. I get the following messages:

bartosch@certa:/fs/data/bartosch/tcl/tdl> svn cleanup
svn: In directory '.'
svn: Error processing command 'delete-entry' in '.'
svn: Working copy 'parms' is missing or not locked

What can I do to get a clean working copy without a new checkout?

The error during a svn update is due to a bug in a NFS server. This server
sometimes does not allow clients to rm directories recursively. If you have:

/a/b

A directory a with a file b inside. When you issue rm -rf /a, b gets deleted
but a remains and one gets Unkown error 525.

IMO subversion does not have to be able to circumvent this error, but
subversion should be able to clean up the working copy when such an error
occurs.

Greets,
