Subversion stores user configuration files in your home directory. Since you
have stored your home directory on a network drive, if you don't have access to
that network drive (like when you are at home), there is no way for Subversion
to load those files. QED

One way to get around this would be to copy the .subversion directory out of
your network H: drive into a folder on your laptop, then redefine the
environment variable HOME when working off network to point to that folder.
Depending on your actual Windows client, you may be able to just make that
changed permanently in your user configuration, and your login script will
override that variable when connected to the network.

In any case, this isn't really a Subversion problem at all...
