It also checks out fine to an NFS mounted folder on a Linux client. However, when I try to check it out to a folder on the Mac that is mounted with NFS via the command 'svn co URL', I get the following error on the terminal:

The error happens every time and at the same point in the process. Does anybody have any idea what could be going on? We've tried both NFS 3 and 4 (and Samba) with the same result. I am beginning to think this may be an SVN bug.

Or perhaps what happens is that, when FlashCards.m is initially created by svn in your working copy, presumably in a directory other than tmp/text-base (perhaps directly in tmp?), the ._FlashCards.m file is made there as well, but when svn then moves FlashCards.m into tmp/textbase, it doesn't also move the ._FlashCards.m file as well.

Just wanted to add: the fact that you mention ".svn/tmp/text-base"
indicates that you're using svn 1.6 or older. Can you try the same
with the latest version, i.e. a 1.7 svn client?
