Subversion working copies (this is in the SVN libraries, not just
TSVN) do not track the state of locks other than those which were
acquired from that working copy. Locks may be very transient and there
isn't a good reason to cache that information - it may become invalid
very quickly, and you have to contact the repository anyway to acquire
a lock - you'll find out if someone has the file locked when you
attempt to do so.

If you must have this information available all the time, keep a Check
for Modifications window open all the time and periodically refresh by
clicking "Check repository".
