Hi Folks,

I seem to have somehow got my repository into an odd state, but can't work out
how to fix it.

First the details:

Subversion 1.2.0
I'm the only user of this repository

Now the problem:

Yesterday I halted a commit from the command line with CTRL-C. Now every time I
try to check in, whether it's from Tortoise or the command line, the operation

Symptoms are (while trying to commit a new directory with some files in it):

I get as far as "Transmitting file data....", but nothing further happens.
The commit appears to be pretty much complete, because I can see my new files
with Tortoise' repo-browser, at the new revision number.
However, if I do 'svn st' from another DOS box, it shows the new files as though
they have not been committed yet ('A'). It also shows that the new directory is
locked ('L'), but also shows that all other directories in the directory where
I've added the new one are also locked, even though they weren't in the commit.

If I break out of the commit, I can then do 'svn cleanup', but now my working
copy seems to be out of step with the repository. Trying 'svn up' gives "failed
to add directory 'x': object of the same name already exists.

The only way I seem to be able to get everything back in sync again is to delete
my working copy from the next directory up, then run 'svn up'. This then gives
me a correct working copy, complete with the new directory and files that I just

So it rather looks as though the commit has worked on the repository side, but
then something is preventing my working copy from being properly updated.

So, any ideas anyone?
