Problem: Locks after a interrupted mirroring attempt

From: Martin Eisenhardt <martin.eisenhardt_at_wiai.uni-bamberg.de>

I use SVM to mirror a repository. Sometimes, the process get killed due to
some problem or the other (f.e., I hit CTRL+C instead of CTRL+Z in my bash).

If I try to restart svm, it simply waits for a lock on the repository that is
left-over from the previous run. But: there are now transactions left over,
and there are no locks.

If SVM is not killed on my end but shuts down due to networking problems (f.e.
because of a timeout), then no locks are left over. So this is some kind of
mystery to me.

Is there a simple way to recover from this kind of problem?

I am using subversion 1.2.3 and FSFS.

Thanks for any help!

Kind regards
