RE: trouble locking on remote filesystems

G'day Lance,

This is actually a Berkeley DB requirement and has been covered
numerous times on this list. I believe it's also described in the
SVN book.

Perhaps someone from the dev team could let us know if the planned
non-BDB backend loosens up this requirement in any way?

Cheers,
Peter
