Actually, the sleepycat page you linked in your previous email only
warns against remote file systems not *fully supporting posix
semantics*, and goes on to warn about specific problems with NFS
implementations on some Linux & FreeBSD releases. Solaris has about as
solid an NFS implementation as you're going to come across. If the svn
server is indeed the only client of the storage then I'm not surprised
it works.
