svn cleanup doesn't work

Using Subversion 1.2.3 client (with _svn hack) on Windows 2003 Server
SP1, we get a problem where svn gets wedged and "svn cleanup" doesn't do


D:\Source\trunk\Products\Web Portal\WebPortal>svn update

svn: Checksum mismatch for '_svn\text-base\Portal.aspx.cs.svn-base';
recorded: '44e94189f57c908d785ed40903216501', actual:


D:\Source\trunk\Products\Web Portal\WebPortal>svn update

svn: Working copy '.' locked

svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for


D:\Source\trunk\Products\Web Portal\WebPortal>svn cleanup

svn: In directory '.'

svn: Can't copy '_svn\tmp\text-base\Portal.aspx.cs.svn-base' to
'Portal.aspx.cs.tmp': The system cannot find the file specified.


Each time we ran svn cleanup, another file called Portal.aspx.cs.tmp.1,
.2, .3, etc. appeared in the working copy, but we kept getting the same
error. The _svn\text-base\Portal.aspx.cs.svn-base file did exist.


In the end, I had to remove the _svn directory and replace it with one
from a freshly checked out copy of the relevant directory, at which
point svn update worked correctly.


I don't know what caused the checksum mismatch - this happened on a
colleague's PC.


So: what does "svn cleanup" actually do? Why didn't it actually clean
