svn cleanup not working

svn cleanup always gives the same cleanup error.

svn: In directory 'www/site/html/images'
svn: Error processing command 'committed' in 'www/site/html/images'
svn: Working copy 'www/site/html/' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)

sometimes you have to go into the directory and run the cleanup from inside there for it to work.

In my case, inside images directory I ran svn cleanup. Then went up 1 directory and ran svn cleanup agan. Repeated the last step until everything was working again.
