Re: svn commit bug over NFS

Ah, thanks for the pointer. Some googling reveals that lockd is not
supported by the userspace NFS server, which is what I had been
running. Switching over to the kernelspace server appears to have
resolved the issue.

Thanks for looking into, and sorry for bothering you with an unrelated
problem.
