Sorry that this post seems to have slipped through the cracks. I intended to
reply to it a couple of days ago, but forgot about it.

I just tried this, which seems to confirm that Subversion supports UNC

J:\tmp\wc>net share test=J:\tmp\wc
test was shared successfully.

J:\tmp\wc>cat >> Form.cs

J:\tmp\wc>svn st
M Form.cs

J:\tmp\wc>svn st \\\test
M \\\test\Form.cs

If the underlying Subversion libraries support them, there's no reason why
Ankh shouldn't do so too. Are you sure that your path is correct?
