Can you please first explain *why* you have to break locks in the
repository browser? You can break multiple locks from the working copy
much easier - and there you even might have a reason because you want to
actually work on those files. But in the repobrowser?

Yes, and unfortunately, that has to stay that way. See below.

To find out if a subfolder contains locks, we would have to recursively
'open' all folders and do an 'svn ls' (svn_client_ls2() resp.). In case
you're wondering why I don't want to do that:

open the repository browser, go to
Ctrl-Click on the '+' on the left of /trunk. (Or hit Ctrl-F5).
