When you lock a file in subversion a lock token will be stored in the
working copy you used to lock the file. So each working copy knows
what locks it holds.

What you can't see however are locks created in other working copies.
For this you need to use the "Check for modifications" dialog as
stated by the previous response.

Read more about subversion locks in the nightly build of the
Subversion book for Subversion 1.2, found here:
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/>. See the section called Locking under
chapter 7 Advanced Topics.
