Re: SVN: Lock on deleted files?

If you search the mailing list archive for 'zombie locks', I think
you'll come across a python script that will remove locks from the
repository for files that have been deleted. It's a long-standing bug
with committing deletions that the lock doesn't get cleared when the
deletion is committed.
