If you can get svn status and see which files has been really modified, you can
checkout only these files. Even on per-file basis.

Even svn revert? In what state the svn server at this moment?
Can you look in .svn dirs and see if you can manually break these locks? If it
is a WC lock, it should be something in there.

From my little knowledge and depends on the level of destruction, you can try
to replace certain directories in working copy, or only top-level directory,
if corruption happened on the top-most level.
svn co --depth=1
Or something similar. Unsure about exact command.
May be not replace, but at least you can get the top-level clean WC and
compare technical area of it to your actual WC to discover any differences,
which could indicate the tails of abandoned commit. Try to cut these tails and
see if your WC is back to normal operations.
However, you better back up your current working copy before trying any
