Most likely, this is not a bug in SVN. There are many, many reasons why
a script won't run on a network share.

For example, Windows has different access rights depending on how and
where a file is stored. A mounted network share has less restrictions
than a non-mounted network share. But of course, both need to be in the
'trusted zone' for windows to execute scripts there.

Another reason might be that the cmd.exe (the windows console) can't
handle UNC paths at all.

And there are many more reasons why the script fails.
My advice: don't use file:/// to access the repository but set up a
proper SVN server (apache or svnserve).
