You cannot lock a directory
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.locking.html#ftn.id361185).
When you click on "Get Lock" on a folder in the working copy TSVN
helps you lock all the files in that simultaneously - that's that list
of filenames with ticks. But at the end those are all file locks. That
means you haven't locked the directory and the others could modify it
- add files in it etc.
