I am not questioning your problem or solution, I am just trying to
understand the ways that we could help solve and prevent this in the UI.
The only time a file should have the read-only attribute set in a
Subversion repository is if the svn:needs-lock property is set. That is
also why I think this is a Subversion bug that they do not clean this up
when the files are added to the working copy.

I think if I add something to the lock dialog that indicates it is coming
up because the read-only attribute it set, that might be enough of a clue
for someone to know that they need to remove those attributes if they do
not want to keep seeing the dialog.
