Client B doesn't see that client A locked files

Hello,

I'm pretty new with subversion, I just switched our code and data from a
propriatary vcs to subversion. Everything seem to run fine, but one
thing doesn't run correct in my eyes.

If client A locks files, tortoisesvn on client A shows this in the file
properties, that's okay. But if client B updates to the current
revision, he doesn't get any notice in tortoisesvn (also if i run svn
from the command line!), if the file is locked by client A or not.
That's a problem, because client B will edit this file, wants to commit
later and notices then, that the file is locked by another person.
With svnadmin on the server, I can watch the locked files, so the lockin
itself is successfull!

Is that normal in subversion or do I have a misconfiguration or another
problem?
I use subversion 1.2.3 on a linux machine, communicating via apache2
webdav svn module. The clients run under windows also using subversion
1.2.3 with the latest tortoisesvn release.

Thanks in advance
