error stealing lock in TSVN 1.5.8

While running a test, I tried stealing a lock using TortoiseSVN 1.5.8
and I got an error that the file was locked. It was the same error I
get if I don't check "steal the locks":


Command: Lock

Error: Path '[path]' is already locked by user '[user]'

Error: in filesystem '[svn internal path]'



I'm pretty sure this worked back in TortoiseSVN 1.5.3. The server is


Also, the Subversion 1.5.5 client, with option "-force", seems to handle
this fine and steals the lock as requested. Another workaround is to
use the repo-browser to break the lock first.


Is it possible that the "steal the locks" checkbox is being ignored?
