No, but this may uncover a real bug.

Since svnserve is holding a repository open for the lifetime of a
connection, then depending on how locking works, it may be impossible
for two client connections to access the same repository at the same
time. That would also affect diff-tests 5.

I don't know why I haven't run into this in my tests. Maybe a db 4.0.14
vs. db 4.1 issue.
