There's always a way...

Really, sharing working copies is a bad idea. Sharing them across a
network share is an even worse idea. But you are fully entitled to
shoot yourself in the foot (or one of your colleagues) ;-)

There was a post on October 3 about this. Search the mail list for
0644 and it should pop up (the thread was 'TSVN errors - Commit
Sccessful, but I can't commit again without delete entire folder. And
Can't clean up.'; posting by gnomeby).

But really, try to refrain from shared working copies across network
shares. Work should be done in private working copies, sharing should
be done via (possibly automatically updated) exports from stable
branch(es) in the repository.

Would you care to explain why you MUST use a shared WC on a SAMBA share?
