This is not a bug.
 
See the FAQ: http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/node/163
 
This is a question that appears fairly regularly on the mailinglist.
 
I would suggest that a warning is displayed if a user tries to lock a file that lacks the "svn:needs-lock"-property, as this seems to confuse a lot of users and is sort of pointless.
 
The warning could either be a part of the lock-dialog or a popup window (ick), and should preferably contain information about the svn:needs-lock property.
