when you type
$ svn --version
does it show
* ra_serf: Module for ...

If not, then serf is not compiled in your svn client and therefore won't
even use it, no matter what you've specified in your servers file.

TSVN uses the equivalent of
$ svn lock x:\path\to\file\to\lock --force
(don't forget the absolute path, not a relative one!).
