You don't mention what kind of server the network share is running on,
but I have to assume it is a samba share.

Try updating your samba installation to the latest version. And you
might want to try the following config options for samba - maybe they
will help:

host msdfs = no
and / or
smb ports = 139

Just do a quick google search for "GET_DFS_REFERRAL" and you will
discover that it's not TSVN's fault (and no, even configuring TSVN to
not scan network shares (which is the default anyway) would help: it's
also the check whether the path is on a network share that's causing this).
