Placing repositories on a network share has always been discouraged
very strongly. Sharing working copies has always been strongly
discouraged too, because it negates the whole point if having revision
control. Placing personal working copies on a network share is not
really discouraged, but it is not exactly supported either due to the
known problems with such devices. I think the general theme is that if
it works for you then all well and good, if it doesn't then all you
can do is try to get some clue from other people who have suffered the
same problem.

Having a local WC is definitely the best way, but there are some
occasions when it is useful to have the WC on a share. My own case a
few years ago is where I had a share on a Linux box. I did all the
editing and version control from Windows (using TSVN) and compiled
under Linux using a PuTTY session. All I can say is that it worked for
me. YMMV.
