Moving a regular file and creating a symbolic link in its place results in E000014, bad address, and cannot cleanup

I tried reproducing using a test repository, but could not.

Any ideas on how to unlock my working copy?

touch foo
svn add foo
svn ci

svn cp foo bar
svn rm foo
ln -s bar foo
svn add foo
svn ci

svn: E200000: Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:
svn: E000014: Error bumping revisions post-commit (details follow):
svn: E000014: Can't create symbolic link
'/.../.svn/tmp/svn-4BxzCs.tmp': Bad address

svn cleanup

svn: E000014: Can't create symbolic link
