AW: Why does "Add..." to working copy automatically set "svn:needs-lock" property?

Hej Uli,

I found the reason.

You were right. The native win32 client uses other configuration files than the cygwin client. I perfectly know about the config file in my Windows user profile, and had already double checked it and checked it again. No auto-props there.

But somehow our IT department has setup our initial PC installation in a way that there is also a config file in the "All Users" section. And voilà, there in the auto-props section, I see a line "* = svn:needs-lock=true".

So, no dodgy behaviour of any client (btw., the Eclipse "Subclipse" plugin showed the same behaviour), but everything can be perfectly explained.

Thanks a lot

Christoph
