The reason you get that error when trying to set the needs-lock property
on a folder is that when doing it from a working copy, the property is
set on all files inside that folder recursively instead. When you try to
do it from the repository browser, that's not possible since it would
take way too long to set the property on each file separately - and you
would probably overload the server as well.

Thanks. I've received a lot dumps for that crash already, but never with
a description on how or when it happened.
I still can't reproduce it here on my machine, but I'll keep trying. I
hope I can find out the reason for this crash with the info you gave here.
