As long as only your working copy is on a network share, it will work.
But if you access the repository via file:// over a network share, it
doesn't work.
The only solution for this is to use TSVN1.1.0RC2 and create an FSFS
repository, _not_(!!!) a BDB repository. That will work over network shares.
