Wrong work flow here: you should not delete the property!
The svn:needs-lock property indicates that you should get a lock first
before editing. Then when you commit that file, the lock will be removed
(if you don't explicitely tell it not to).

That's a feature request for the Subversion library. This was requested
before (and not for the first or only time), but there never was a
consensus on *how* to implement this. I guess as soon as that happens,
it won't take long to have this implemented - but the consensus is the
hard part here.
