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.
