Or what about if we use our svn-users list and ask there?

   Subject: User interface survey (command line)

   You have following working copy and you are about committing it:

      foo/
        first_file.txt #locked, and modified
        second_file.txt #locked, and unmodified

      svn commit ./foo

   After that, what do you expect that will happen:

   a) first_file.txt will been shown on the modified file list (on your
      commit log editor), and it is still locked after the commit.

   b) first_file.txt will been shown on the modified file list (on your
      commit log editor), and it is unlocked after the commit
      (second_file.txt will be still locked).

   c) first_file.txt and second_file.txt have been shown on the
      modified file list, and both of them have been unlocked after
      the commit (even when content of second_file.txt was unmodified).
 
   d) Something else, please tell us what?

Let's the masses raise their voice.

BR, Jani
