svn: Cannot write to the prototype revision file of transaction '7391-1' because a previous representation is currently being written by this process


  1. Locate the offending transation (not the one in the error!):
    svnadmin lstxns /path/to/repository
    Repeat this step several times over a few minutes to ensure that it is actually stuck and not just slow.
  2. Remove the offending transaction (change the id based on the first step):
    svnadmin rmtxns /path/to/repository 6265-1
