TSVN (and svn for that matter) doesn't work properly with SAMBA shares,
since especially older versions of SAMBA lack important locking features
(file system locking, not svn locking). Therefore even basic things like
fetching the status won't work properly.

check out a working copy on your local harddrive instead. Working copies
are meant to be kept local, not on a network share.
