Commit and authorization failed on locked file

have you a solution for this:


I have a file in my repository, let's say test.xml which was locked and
afterwards modified


At the command line I do:


>svn status -v test.xml

M K 607 607 bkw


>svn commit test.xml -m"test manual commit"

svn: Commit failed (details follow):

svn: Authorization failed


>svn status -v test.xml

M K 607 607 bkw


>svn unlock test.xml

'test.xml' unlocked.


>svn commit test.xml -m"test manual commit"

Sending test.xml

Transmitting file data .

Commited revision 608.


>svn status -v test.xml

                                               608 608 bkw




According to the svn doku the first commit should have been working
releasing at the same time the lock. Is this a bug? What is a

The only person who has access to the file and to the repository is me,
so no different users up to now.


Thank's for your help,
