Lock icon overlay normal (green) instead readonly (grey)

After upgrading from tsvn-1.6.15 to 1.7.10 the behavior for the lock icon overlay is different:

If the svn:needs-lock property is set but has no value then in 1.7.10 the normal (green) overlay icon is displayed instead of the readonly (grey) one.

The Subversion book says about svn:needs-lock
[1] http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.ref.properties.html#svn.ref.properties.versioned-props:
If present on a file, tells the client to make the file read-only in the working copy, as a reminder that the file should be locked before editing begins.
[2] http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.advanced.locking.html#svn.advanced.locking.lock-communication:
If that property is attached to a file (regardless of its value, which is irrelevant), Subversion will try to use filesystem-level permissions to make the file read-only—unless, of course, the user has explicitly locked the file.

It would save us a lot of explanations to our users if the readonly (grey) icon overlay is displayed again regardless the value of svn:needs-lock.
