If there is a working copy incompatibility between OSs, that's too bad.
Is it too difficult to make WCs platform independent?

I suggest that at minimum, SVN clients are able to detect that a WC is
incompatible, and report a sensible error message, rather than giving
obscure behaviour and errors.

I suppose this suggestion should go to the SVN mailing list.
