thank you very much for the hint. I wonder why I didn't see it since I
had taken a look into the FAQ. Your tip saved a lot of time and frustration.

Applying the first solution mentioned in the FAQ (delete readonly = yes)
has solved the problem for me. Just some quick notes:

- My samba version is 3.2.5, so, according to the FAQ, the main problem
should have been fixed. But my version seems to be, guess what, the last
one in which the additional supplementary problem mentioned in the FAQ
hasn't been fixed. Since my samba is Debian Lenny stock, I think many
people will be affected by this.

- I am still wondering what's going on there because when I create a
file in the respective share using windows explorer (right mouse click
-> new file), the attributes are set in the right way. So TortoiseSVN
seems to set the attributes to readonly by intent when creating files.

I have understood that it is a samba / linux thing if read-only files
could be deleted. But before being readonly, they must be created
readonly or set to readonly. Is this still a samba bug, or is is done
intentionally? If the latter is the case, what's the reason for this? Is
read-only and locking used to make transaction security possible?

Thank you very much,
