Upgrading Confluence 3.5.1 to 4.2.2 fails while dropping 'contentlock' table


I am trynig to upgrade confluence 3.5.1 to Confluence 4.2.2

While running the upgrade, it fails while dropping the 'contentlock' table.

Error indicates that table 'contentlock' doesn't exist and hence upgrade fails while dropping the table.

Has anyone else faced this issue? Is there any known bug for the same?

I had the same problem when upgrading from 3.4.9 to 4.2.2, on oracle. I worked around this by just creating an empty contentlock table. I don't know the purpose of this table but the upgrade proceeded OK after doing that.
