I have been using TortoiseSVN for a 2-3 months to control my subversion. Today when I tried to commit files to a repository it showed me a strange message like this:

When I went to the menu and selected Cleanup command it showed me this new message box:

I have tried to release lock it says that there is nothing to unlock.
What happened with my subversion repository? Has anybody met with this problem before? How to solve it?
A lot of thanks.

    Your repository is probably fine, it's your working copy that has problems. – Joey Jun 29 '10 at 15:00

Delete the working directory (or backup it, if you already did changes). Then, get new a copy from the server (and merge your changes from the backup copy with tool like WinMerge)
