I just get upset when I answer questions but people choose to ignore it.

1. You're asking about problems of the linux svn client on the TSVN list
2. I told you to "never access a repository or working copy on a
partition that's not fully supported by the OS". You know that it
doesn't work. But you still ask again on how to do it anyway.

Every svn client on windows can.

svn won't fail setting permissions on FAT32 when used with a windows
client. That's why it works.
But it will fail with a linux client, because Linux (not SVN) can't
deal very well with FAT32.

We don't do it. Because it doesn't work.
So you have to use two different working copies.
