I played with umask and trying to force Samba permissions, but both
did not work.

Our system administrator said that I have perhaps made a mistake by
forcing the Samba permissions, because it should work, however he does
not approve of this approach and asked me to check with he Eclipse

I got an immediate reply from the SVNKit people, which I post here,
for the sake of giving them credit for the prompt reply, and for
documentation - if someone else has a similar problem.

I'll try to investigate further and post any discoveries.

Thank a lot for your help, so far.

Follows the reply from SVNKit when I forwarded them this thread.
I'll try to execute the suggested steps and will update everyone.
Hello Iv,
We've got several similar bug reports a few months ago, the fix for that
issue was committed to SVNKit and it's available since 1.2.2 version.
Please check what version of SVNKit do you use and update the library if
needed (you can use update site at http://eclipse.svnkit.com/1.2.x for
There could be another reason for your problem and you can try to use
the following workaround:
1. Check if JNA library is also installed as a plugin. You can try to
switch it off -- SVNKit is supposed to work without that library.
2. What version of JRE do you use? You can try to switch to 1.6 version
-- there were some enhancements related to file permissions processing.
Please let me know if any of that described above works and of course
feel free to ask any additional questions.
