TSVN is linked statically against the svn library. It doesn't use the
svn client! So there's no 'communication between SVN and TSVN'.

When you say TSVN doesn't know it's locked: does the SVN client know
that? Does it tell you that the file is locked when you do an

Do you access your repository via http(s)? If yes, check the apache
error log - maybe there's something in there.
