File lock issue

Hi All,

I find that a file with svn:needs-lock creates an exclusive lock only in
the branch I am working in.
My understanding was that creating an exclusive lock was to ensure
serialised update on files (eg word docs) because they cannot be merged.

Is there any way of preventing changes across branches till the latest
copy of the file is merged into the branch before editing or
alternatively is there a way of informing users on different branches
that the file has been edited and they need to update their copy before

Thanks for any help in advance.
