What was the original failure that locked the working copy?

Sounds like you are using the cygwin client. Try using the native
client and see what happens. The cygwin client doesn't include some
workaround code for Window's tag-alongs like virus scanners, indexers,
etc. Another possibility is that you are using a network drive of
some sort for your working copy and something is wrong with it --
hardware failures, network failures, etc.
