There is a 1.7 bug:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4192

that fails to remove locks that should be removed.

I'm not sure whether that applies to Justin's particular case because
that's only a problem if the lock gets released between the original
workqueue run and the second workqueue run.  That's a very small
window--in most cases both runs see the lock and the bug does not apply.

There is also a 1.6 bug:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4196

that removes locks that should remain.

I think it is likely that Justin is seeing the buggy 1.6 behaviour.  In
some circumstances this buggy behaviour will not cause a problem but in
other circumstances it will corrupt the working copy.
