theoretical question about Subversion

Sorry for disturbing you, I am not an expert in the SCM world, but I
have a question which can be an interestiong question about the future
of the Subversion.
(we use an RCS based system with a Windows GUI frontend,
we have about 39 projects consisting 3388 files since 1997,
some file has more than 100 revision, 3 of them has more than 150)

Our major problem about every SCM-s we know, that
every version changes is based on WHO and WHEN and other infos like
status, Revision, etc.
But not on WHERE, I mean when someone works with a file - check-it out
in "Computer 1" , and then
moves to another computer "Computer 2", which has an older revision or
even a modified version of the file,
none of the systems warns the user that this is a DIFFERENT computer
than he checked-out the file.
The version control system only shows that the file is MODIFIED.

Any suggestion about to solve this situation or any SCM which knows the
"WHERE" also?

Thanks in Advance,

Dezso Meszaros
