"No locks available" how do I fix it?

>svn ci -m "svn lock trouble" .
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't get exclusive lock on file
'/media/stuart/svn/ca/db/txn-current-lock': No locks available

I had done a svn mkdir and svn moved a bunch of files to it plus adding
some more - is that relevant?

I tried a

 svn ci .

but the program hung after the edit pop up, and I killed it.

Since then I can not get it past the No locks available message.

I have tried all the possible relevant admin actions I could find in the
manual, including recover (which also dies for lack of lock).

lslocks does not show any

rmlocks does nothing

svn status -u sees no problem

and so on.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and the distribytion is up to

svn --version
