The only version control system that I know of that can prevent the
problem would be a ClearCase dynamic view. The dynamic view intercepts
all OS file I/O calls thus preventing applications from ignoring the
'readonly' flag. However, ClearCase is expensive and dynamic views have
their own drawbacks.

Plan B: If your users put their checkouts under a particular directory,
you could install a script that will periodically scan the checkout dirs
and check if any svn:needs-lock files have been modified. 'svn proplist
-R ...'
