svn lock gives different output with --force?

I have a pre-lock hook that disallows locking if the path is already
locked and the new lock requester is different from the original
locker. In such a case, the script will print to stderr.

I am getting a difference in the output of svn lock with and without
--force as shown below.

svn lock foo.h
svn: Lock request failed: 423 Locked (

svn lock --force foo.h
svn: 'pre-lock' hook failed with error output:
Error: /USERS/aniruddha/src/foo.h already locked by anil.

why the difference? doesn't the pre-lock hook get executed in case 1?

many thanks
