      Description

      Subversion sometimes erroneously sets a pristine text ref-count to 0.  This
      issue is not about the causes of that error, but about further problems that
      make it very hard to recover from such an error.
      
        * 'cleanup' deletes pristines that have a ref-count of 0 without first
      checking that the ref-count is correct.
      
        * 'cleanup' errors out, leaving the WC locked, on finding a missing pristine.
