Re: 1.7.1: E200033: database is locked, executing statement 'RELEASE s0'

"database is locked" is the error SQLite would give when it tries to write to a database (.svn/wc.db) on which some other process already has a write-lock. The SQLite documentation:


states SQLite relies on POSIX advisory locks. Do those locks (fcntl() locks, if I read the source correctly) work correctly in your environment?
