Yes, sounds familiar.
Problem is that Ext2Fsd doesn't return the proper values for certain
filesystem API calls. The ones the svn library uses to determine whether
a path is a file or a folder here is the problem. Subversion doesn't get
the proper return value, so it treats the file as a folder and that
leads to the error message.
This has to be fixed in Ext2Fsd.
