The weird thing is, it's very, very, very common for newbies
(presumably mostly coming from CVS) to assume that the condition
solved by `lock-revision --break' is actually a wedged archive and to
figure out for themselves how to fix it "by hand" on the server.

As a recent newbie: I started out by deleting revisions. Then discovering I had to recreate the lock directories. When I encountered my first unwanted lock, I already knew how to restore it, so I didn't even look for a command.
