Oops. When doing archive surgery like that, you should have done
something like this:

 % cd {archive}/mozart/mozart--main/mozart--main--0/
 % mv patch-9748/++revision-lock patch-9747
 % mv patch-9748 /var/tmp/      # or use rm if you're brave...

However, to fix it I would think it should be sufficient to just do:

 % tla lock-revision mozart--main--0

You can possibly also fix it with 

 % cd {archive}/mozart/mozart--main/mozart--main--0/patch-9747/
 % mkdir -p ++revision-lock/+contents

Sorry I can't help with your other problems...
