 during my reading in the subsection "Locking" i have encountered an
 interesting situation.

 If an working copy has an lock which is no longer valid and the
 "svn st -u " prints out an "B" character...than an "svn update"
 will print out "  B" too in the third column.

 In my opinion this should be added to the reference section of "svn
 update" to be complete...may be just adding a paragraph about the third
 column with "B" in it....

 Here's an example showing what he's talking about:

 $ svn lock banana.jpg
 'banana.jpg' locked by user 'cmpilato'.
 $ svn unlock --force `svn-url banana.jpg`
 'banana.jpg' unlocked.
 $ svn st -u
      B          1   banana.jpg
 Status against revision:      1
 $ svn up
   B  banana.jpg
 At revision 1.

 We should update the reference accordingly.
