vfat mount and subversion

I have encountered couple of problems on a laptop which has a vfat mounted
for sharing between Linux and XP. I'm not sure whether this has been
reported earlier (I searched for vfat but nothing came up). And I also
quickly scanned through the fixes made in 1.3.0 and and 1.3.1 but couldn't
find any reference.

ijjarvin@kivilampi-30:~$ svn --version
svn, version 1.2.3 (r15833)
   compiled Aug 26 2005, 03:42:45

Because vfat does not have standard chmoding capabilities, some commands

- svn update fails (Might also be due to international character ÷ or
spaces in the filename)
After that, it asks me to do svn cleanup, but
- svn cleanup fails (cannot set some files to readonly)

Other thing I have so far had no luck is:

- svn commit to repository that resides on the vfat drive (as it cannot
set some permissions?)

Other commands could be affected as well... Should I file a issue from
