It is a message from the svn command (invoked by continuum) to say that
the working copy it is using is locked, and so it cannot continue.

svn protects the working copy while it is working with it by locking the
working copy. If you kill svn (by stopping continuum while it is busy for
example), then the working copy stays locked, and you need to run "svn
cleanup" to fix it.

Find the directory containing your working copy inside continuum, and run
"svn cleanup", or alternatively just delete the working copy, and
continuum will check out a fresh one from scratch.

Regards,
Graham
