Okay, then there must be something strange with this local disk; or a
second process is interfering with 'svn' trying to lock its database.
In any case, no network is involved then, so "flaky network" can't be
the cause of your problem. The error you received specifically points
to a problem while locking the working copy database:

[[[
svn: E200033: Another process is blocking the working copy database,
or the underlying filesystem does not support file locking; if the
working copy is on a network filesystem, make sure file locking has
been enabled on the file server
svn: E200033: sqlite[S5]: database is locked
svn: E200042: Additional errors:
svn: E200033: sqlite[S5]: database is locked
svn: E200030: sqlite[S1]: cannot start a transaction within a transaction
svn: E200030: sqlite[S1]: cannot start a transaction within a transaction
]]]

To be clear: the "working copy database" is an sqlite database in the
"wc.db" file inside the .svn directory at the root of your working
copy.

I'm not sure what else to suggest, but "something" is preventing 'svn'
from locking its database; and since you're using a local disk, it
seems to me that "network" is not involved in this locking process.

BTW, what version of SVN are you using?
