I'm going with most likely, you don't.  If the actual name reported for the
lock file above was something like ',,' then this may mean you
simply don't have the needed write permissions to the directory even though you
have write permissions for the lock directory, which allowed you to check out.
Sometimes this can happen if a new directory was created by someone else whose
default group isn't one you're a member of and the setgid bit hasn't been set
on the directory.
