I don't know is that a problem from svn, or from tsvn, because two others programs (rapidsvn and subclipse) do the same like tsvn. I think it is not a Samba problem, then I can copy, delete and rename the "entries" file with the Windows explorer, that what I expected. Every information for this is welcome.

As this happens with all subversion clients, the best place to ask
such a question is on the users at subversion.tigris.org list. But
frankly, don't expect a lot of sympathy. You should not share a
working copy at all as it defeats all the safety built into subversion
to prevent users overwriting each other's changes. And you should
NEVER share a working copy between Windows and Linux clients. They are
not guaranteed to be compatible and you will likely end up with
working copy corruption. A working copy is a private thing, to be used
on your local machine.
