svnsync uses revision properties on r0 that get updated as the sync

   svnlook proplist -v --revprop -r0 path/to/repo

The SQLite code expects there to be contention for the file and has a
timeout (10s as I recall).  In your case something appears to have
blocked access for an extended period of time.
