issue for svn:needs-lock

I have a problem in using this svn:needs-lock property to make files
read-only. Hope to get some answers from experts in this group.

First, I added this svn:needs-lock property to a file with a value of one
through Context Menu ->TortoiseSVN -> Properties

Second, I refreshed the Windows Explorer to get the status updated for
this file.

Now, the problem is that the icon overlay in Windows Explorer shows the
status of this file as modified, not read-only. Since the status of file
is shown as modified (icon overlay shown as exclamation), I can edit this
file without warning shown up, even though this svn:needs-lock property is
set for this file.

According to the TortoiseSVN manual, once the svn:needs-lock property is
set for a file, this file becomes a read-only file and the icon overlay is
still a check mark.

Can anyone tell me whether I missed anything???

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.4.8.

Any help will be appreciated.
