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!).
