It sounds like you're talking about "text-mode" versus "binary-mode"
mounts. I've never tried it, but I've heard that using svn on a
text-mode mount is a Bad Idea.

If the original poster indeed has his working copy on a text-mode
mount, he should try creating a new binary mount of the same
directory, and seeing if things work better that way.
