One of my directories is locked and cleanup will not fix it.

I have a series of images in two of my directories that is no longer
accessible. They are missing from my working directory. When I try to
do an update I receive the following message:
P:\WizardsFamiliar2\com.lesliesoftware.wizardsfamiliar\icons>svn update
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for

When I do as suggested - run clean up I get this
P:\WizardsFamiliar2\com.lesliesoftware.wizardsfamiliar>svn cleanup
svn: In directory 'icons'
svn: Can't copy 'icons\.svn\tmp\text-base\command_open.PNG.svn-base' to
'icons\command_open.PNG.9.tmp': The system cannot find
he file specified.

Where the number 9.tmp increases with the number of times I run the
command. I have run the clean up command from various levels in the
working copy all resulted in the same message.

I am afraid I have done a bad thing. This is how I got here (in case
it is relevant to my current problem):

I had a series of files under source control named *.PNG and I wanted
to change the name to *.png. When I tried to rename them directly I
received a message that I could not just change the case of the file
name. So I renamed each one to *.png2 and then renamed them again to
*.png. And committed them. All seemed well. Then as I was upgrading
my IDE I deleted my working copy and after the upgrade I recreated it.
I noticed that the icons in question were missing so I tried to perform
an update and that is when I saw the error described above.

I renamed the files using TortoiseSVN and committed / created the
working copy using Subeclipse.
