How to Fix SVN Issue "Attempted to lock an already-locked dir"

Using FlexBuilder 3 and attempting to commit a file to SVN Repository, I bumped into the following error:
commit -m "Updated fr_FR version" D:/Adobe/.../fr_FR/
Attempted to lock an already-locked dir
svn: Working copy 'D:\Adobe\...\fr_FR' locked

Based on SVN help, it says that "svn cleanup" can do the following:
Recursively clean up the working copy, removing locks, resumingunfinished operations, etc.

When cleanup command was issued, I bumped into another issue:
svn: Error replacing text-base of ''svn: Can't move 'src\assets\search\locale\fr_FR\.svn\tmp\text-base\' to 'src\assets\search\locale\fr_FR\.svn\text-base\': The system cannot find the path specified.

To fix this issue, I manually added a new folder named "text-base" in ...\fr_FR\.svn subfolder. Finally, I was able to commit my file to the SVN repository.
