I have no idea what the problem could be. I suggest that you try to
reproduce the problem using svn commands in a command window, rather than
using TortoiseSVN. This will remove Tortoise from the picture, and perhaps
give additional information. Maybe someone else will have a suggestion.

Start with a file that does not have the needs-lock property (assume the
file is called test.txt). You can make sure with the command:

    svn propget svn:needs-lock test.txt

You should see no output from this command if the property is not set.

Next, set the property:

    svn propset svn:needs-lock "*" test.txt

You should see a message indicating that the property was set.

Now commit:

    set EDITOR=notepad.exe
    svn commit

(The first command tells svn what editor to use for the commit comments.)

Now check the repository:

    svn propget svn:needs-lock test.txt -r HEAD

Hopefully this will shed some light.
