Problem with file permissions using TortoiseSVN

Hello everyone,

I have just installed a TortoiseSVN server and a client, both on
Windows XP computers. The connection between the computers work fine
but when I try to edit a file I get a grey check box icon, which I
have read means that non-locked files are made read-only (I guess that
the svn:needs-lock it set). I believe that this is a good setting as
we will only be editing LabView code and not any text files.
   I am not able to save files which is correct due to the write
protection attribute. But when I try to "get lock" for a file that I
want to edit, I get a message back "Lock finished!" and "Locked by..".
Although I still have the grey check box and I still can't save files
that are edited.
  When I click Commit, it displays that changes have been made to the
file, but when I click ok nothing is being submitted.
  I can solve the problem by manually unchecking the write protection
in the file attributes and then changing the file and checking it in.
What I wonder is if this should be necessary? I get the same behavior
on both the client and server and couldn't find any solution in the
manual or FAQ. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Johan Gustafsson, Sweden.
