version 1.3.1 (linux)

What error does 'svn cleanup' generate?

no errors from svn cleanup - no response at all - just seems to return
contentedly - as if im clean

is this problem on the client or server side? its svn through sourceforge - do i
need to contact them

are there lock files i can manually fiddle with (i cant find them)

so its only from the root of my svn files/dirs that is the problem. If i go down
from the root I can svn commit. and at the root I can do other svn commands -
update, status, log (does log show locks? i grepped for lock - got nothing) - I
just cant svn commit from the root anymore - It still gives the above error message.

Thanks for you help - this list is great, Mark
