svn cleanup svn: E200033: sqlite: database is locked

Some days, when run svn xxx in running, but terminated by Ctrl+Z, then i’v get these error messages:

svn cleanup svn: E200033: sqlite: database is locked

This helped me solve the problem (subversion 1.7.10):

$ cd /my/repository/.svn
$ mv wc.db wc.db.old
$ sqlite3 wc.db.old
sqlite> .backup main wc.db
sqlite> .exit

After making sure it works, you can remove wc.db.old.
