That's because "lock owner" is wholly a subversion concept, so only an
svn client can set that field. It's confusing, because in DAV there
*is* a field called "DAV:owner", but mod_dav_svn maps it to the svn
"lock comment" field (see long mailing threads about why we do this).
Nothing wrong with it, though, since the mapping is two-way. (That is,
when a DAV client requests the fields of a lock, svn takes the "lock
comment" field and returns it as the "DAV:owner" value.)

In any case, I think you're reading too much into the "lock owner
unknown" symptom. That behavior is to be expected from any
non-subversion DAV cilent.
