For the record, I'm on a NetApp fs here (running over NFS), and I wasn't
ever able to get 0.37.0 to work. I ended up putting it in /tmp and
accessing it via the "file://" pragma (along with hooks that backup the
repo after every commit).

This is not a terribly big deal for me, but I was just curious if anyone
with svn 0.37.0 managed to get it to work over a NetApp.
