As it turns out, the problems with the lock-file command were due to
confusion on my part about the difference between the revision of the
svn client and the revision of the Subversion server.

When I executed "svn -version" from the command line, the returned value
for revision was 1.3.2. What I did not understand was that this was the
version of the client, not the server.

When I finally recognized this error, I ran "svnversion -version" on the
server (rather than on the remote computer command line). The returned
value for revision was 1.1.4.

Therefore, although both TortoiseSVN and svn.exe supported file locking,
the Subversion server did not.

I resolved the problem by installing a more recent version of the
Subversion server.

Good luck resolving the issue on your system.
