txn-current-lock is a file that svn locks on to make modifications to
txn-current. Since txn-current-lock is only created once and then used for
locking, if you have different users committing to the repository, then the two
owners can be different.

Look for more info here:


BTW, if you have two or more people committing into the same repository using
file://, you really should set up an Apache or svnserve server instead.
