System A edited tables.cmd which had otherwise gone unchanged for quite
some time, committed it and then this lock/cleanup problem arose on
System B when I tried to update. I've checked both machines and there is
no sign of anything other than a pure lowercase tables.cmd.

I found a number of articles blaming this sort of problem on case
insensitivity, but I can find no evidence for it here. And the stated
solutions for same were no help.

Alas, to get around the problem I removed a number of large things from
the repo (I'll add them back later sans history) so I could destroy my
working copy and re-checkout. That seemed to be the only way I could get
back working again from a 24 kbps dial-up.

But this has shaken my confidence in svn as my working copy was useless
and the bulldozer method of fixing it is inelegant and often infeasible.
