A 404 makes more sense, but that also made the litmus test fail. Here  
are the relevant headers (took out the unneeded stuff)

LOCK /litmus/unmapped_url HTTP/1.1
Depth: 0
Timeout: Second-3600

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<lockinfo xmlns='DAV:'>
   <lockscope><exclusive/></lockscope>
   <locktype><write/></locktype><owner>litmus test suite</owner>
</lockinfo>

HTTP/1.1 201 Created
Lock-Token: opaquelocktoken:44445502-4fdd-85ab-b7ea-4f2b040acaac
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<d:prop xmlns:d="DAV:">

     <d:activelock>
      <d:lockscope><d:exclusive /></d:lockscope>
      <d:locktype><d:write /></d:locktype>
      <d:depth>0</d:depth>
      <d:timeout>Second-1800</d:timeout>
      <d:locktoken>
       <d:href>opaquelocktoken:44445502-4fdd-85ab-b7ea-4f2b040acaac</ 
d:href>
      </d:locktoken>
      <d:owner>litmus test suite</d:owner>
     </d:activelock>
   </d:lockdiscovery>
</d:prop>

DELETE /litmus/unmapped_url HTTP/1.1
If: <http://sabredav.evertpot.com/litmus/unmapped_url>  
(<opaquelocktoken:44445502-4fdd-85ab-b7ea-4f2b040acaac>)

HTTP/1.1 204 No Content


Now test 39 starts:

UNLOCK /litmus/unmapped_url HTTP/1.1
Lock-Token: <opaquelocktoken:44445502-4fdd-85ab-b7ea-4f2b040acaac>

I both tried responding with a 404, and a 412. Both fail the litmus  
test. Would 404 be the appropriate response code here?
