And what's in there? The repository or your working copy?

Into the samba share, or from the samba share?

Which protocol do you use? file:// or http:// or what?

You have to configure how windows logons map to unix logins.
In addition consult man umask. On Debian systems, apache usually runs
as user www, so you have to make your files world readable, so that
the apache process can read them.

As which user did you login?
What are the permissions of the file?
Please show ls -dla of a file or directory.

You mean working copy, don't you?
Or do you mean right click D'n'D and "Copy in Subversion"?

So you do "cp xyz.1 xyz.2"

Possible, but unlikely.

Your terminology is a bit mixed up, can you please clarify?
