Yes it was the "read only" aspect that "fixed" it. Prior to SVN 1.4
"read only" status in the w/c was preserved through update (even if the
file changed), after that read only status was associated with needs-lock.

Anyway it just so happened to be a good workaround for that particular
app so I thought I'd suggest it. Doesn't mean it works in the general
case though.
