Don't know if it can be fixed easily:
it's the svn library that does not report such locks.

You can try yourself:
$ svn st -u .
won't show locks on file externals, but it will show locks on normal files.

When you show the status for a file external directly, you show the status as if the file was not an external but from where it's included from. That's why the remote lock is shown then.
But if you show the status for a working copy, the remote info is not fetched from file externals.

You would have to ask for this feature on the svn mailing list.
Can't really do that in TSVN since it would require a separate round trip to the server for every file external - and there are repos out there with literally thousands of file externals in one working copy!

This needs to be handled in the svn lib so the round trips are not necessary.
