Not exactly. I am wondering what kind of problems the lock created.

SVN locks are tied to a particular working copy, not just a user. If you
are editing from multiple systems then, from the lock's perspective,
there are multiple editors and you would need to release the lock from
one system before obtaining it from the other. (Alternatively, you can
break the lock.)

In particular, the "Regarding lock tokens" inset (yellow-ish) box a
little down the page?
