Is there a _held_ lockdir in the directory:


or was the lockdir just completely missing?

If there is a held one in the parent dir then it happened presumably
because some earlier attempt to commit was interrupted.   That's
perfectly normal behavior and the solution is to use `tla
lock-revision --break [....]' to fix it.

If the lockdir was entirely missing, well, that'd be very odd.
Perhaps you deleted it by hand or perhaps some other tool did or
perhaps there is a bug in your sftp implementation or filesystem.  One
should never say never but tla never does that.
