Another example of cleanup bug (similar to issue 2355)

From: <aphthong07_at_pobox.com>

The problem here is caused by checking into subversion a file name
format that windows is not happy with. So when you do an update you
get an error.
D:\Windspear>svn update
A mtvbios\test
A mtvbios\test\out:4
A mtvbios\test\out
svn: In directory 'mtvbios\test'
svn: Can't move 'mtvbios\test\.svn\tmp\out:4.tmp.tmp' to
'mtvbios\test\.svn\tmp\out:4.tmp': The filename, directory name, or
volume label syntax is incorrect.
So but and attempt at cleanup also fails:
D:\Windspear>svn cleanup
svn: In directory 'mtvbios\test'
svn: Can't move 'mtvbios\test\.svn\tmp\out:4.tmp.3.tmp' to
'mtvbios\test\.svn\tmp\out:4.tmp': The filename, directory name, or
volume label syntax is incorrect.

So any attempt to update or even remove the file fails do to the lock.
D:\Windspear>svn update
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)
Cleanup really needs to be able to recover so you could possibly do a
rename or delete to fix the bad file name.
