Working copy locked after doing a svn:externals

I have a problem with a project that uses an svn:externals property

In a single repository (I am just testing things out) there is a project and
a sharedproject

the folder layout is


the idea is that project/trunk/sharedproject links to sharedproject using
svn:externals. So there is a svn:externals property on project/trunk, with
the value "sharedproject svn://host/test/sharedproject". The property has
been set using TortoiseSVN.

According to the manual, a svn update on 'project' should read
sharedprojects folders and files into the project/sharedproject folder in
the sandbox. This is not happening, however. I see a

   svn:Working copy 'sharedproject' locked
   svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks(type...)

Ok, so I run svn cleanup and svn update again, and I get the same error. I
have not locked sharedproject myself, and I haven't touched the svn
configuration so I woudl expect that there were no locks. svn status doesn't
say anything about locks either.

Best regards
