That's because it's none of your business. Some user has created a
lock in the repository; that user might have 13 different working
copies, and it's his private business as to which working copy
actually contains the associated lock-token. Why do you want to know?
 Why does it matter?

You already know which user locked the file, so either call him and
ask him to release the lock, or forcibly break (or steal) the lock

I agree that this is a bug. The full path to the repositorty is a
minor security bug that we should fix. And I agree that it doesn't
help the user at all.
