Subversion itself does not keep that information in the working copy,
so Tortoise can't use it from there.

Lock information can be stale the instant it's retrieved, so caching
it is not really useful. Showing lock holders would mean having to
poll the repository constantly to look for them - very inefficient.
Use Check for Modifications -> Check Repository to get an update when
you need it.
