BUG: authz, commit locked file

I didn't see anything about this in the current issues (although it may be related in some way to other commit bugs dealing with authz?)
Anyway, the issue is when you set up specific directory permissions as such:
groupAB = userA,userB
@groupAB = rw
userC = rw
This means that userA and userB have full access throughout the entire repository, but userC only has access to the subfolder 'a'. When userC updates a file in this directory and commits (with or without comment) it succeeds. When userC locks a file in that directory, modifies it and commits with or without a comment it fails "Authorization failed".
Strange bug to be sure, but a fairly important one because basically its saying that development users with access to specific development trees only cannot lock files and then commit them (they have to release the lock prior to commit...).
Has anyone heard of this?
