TSVN properly sets the write permissions when you do a "get lock" (to be
exact: it removes the readonly flag).

We has some reports about this before. Here's a list (from what I
remember) what the reason was:

* some firewall reset the readonly flag immediately (ZoneAlarm is maybe
the most annoying of those: the bug reappears in every other new version
of it)
* some svn plugin for VisualStudio is known to always set the readonly
flag if you haven't 'checked out' the file with the plugin itself
* virus scanners are also known to interfere: some find that removing
the readonly flag is a security risk and they change it back immediately
