[Issue?] Can't commit to a local repository on a mounted windows filesystem under linux

Hi dev,
I had the following issue today on my dual-boot machine.
It seems that the linux svn client can't commit to a local (file://)
repository which lies on a mounted
Windows file system (it's NTFS mounted rw with ntfs-3g in my case). That's
because it can't
chmod a file.
I'm using svn version 1.4.4 (r25188) with FSFS under Linux. On windows it's
still 1.4.3.

I get the following error:
Sending file
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't chmod '/windows/D/rep/db/transactions/64-1.txn/rev': Operation
not permitted
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/my/wd/svn-commit.tmp'
mount says:
/dev/hda2 on /windows/D type fuseblk

My work-around solution was to copy the rep to the Linux drive, relocate the
wd, commit and
copy the rep back.

Can this be fixed, i.e. maybe ignore the chmod error on windows filesystems?
