Sounds like one of you has the ASP_DOT_NET_HACK environment variable
set. If you need ASP.NET compatibility and have to use _svn folders
instead of .svn then you should have that variable set on all client PCs
using the share. If you are using regular .svn directories then you must
make sure that variable is *not* set. You cannot mix and match.

BTW, sharing WCs is not at all recommended as you loose many of the
advantages of a version control system for multiple users working with
the same files. Sooner or later someone is going to lose their changes.
