svn cleanup has problems with recursive cleanup

Hi all,

I'm having problems with "svn cleanup". Basically if I run the command on
the root of the WC I get:

svn: In directory 'swfupload'
svn: Error processing command 'committed' in 'swfupload'
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for

(svn help cleanup) does not offer any helpful information, of course :)

but if I

cd swfupload
svn cleanup
cd ..
svn cleanup

that seems to resolve the issue. Which seems unnecessary to me. Running
svn cleanup on the root should IMO fix the entire WC, not force the user
to travers the WC by himself.

On a related note, after doing all this dance, I am left with:

svn: In directory '.'
svn: Error processing command 'committed' in '.'
svn: Can't move '.svn/props/README.txt.svn-work' to
'.svn/prop-base/README.txt.svn-base': No such file or directory

Any suggestions on how to get out of this one?

SVN is 1.5.0 final. The error occured during the initial commit, because
of the problem with permissions on .svn directories.
