That's not possible. If you try to lock 7 files, and the third file
can't be locked then the remaining four files won't be locked either -
the whole command then aborts.

Read my sentence again. I said 'for the time being' I leave it that way.
I didn't say I won't change it ever! I need somthing that works *now* so
I can test stuff in TSVN.

The context menu not only changes while SHIFT is pressed. It also
changes according to the status of the file you click on.
And besides: Windows does that too!
