Converting BDB to FSFS on NFS & linux

I have a local BDB repository that I want to convert to FSFS ... I am trying to do this using the dump & load procedure recommended
in the book for migrating between versions.

I am mounting my remote partion using the following entry in fstab: /data/svn-nfs-repos nfs
user,nfsvers=3,rsize=8192,timeo=14,tcp,hard,lock,intr,wsize=8192,noauto,posix 0 0

I successfully run

{nfs} svnadmin create --fs-type=fsfs /data/svn-nfs-repos/go-dev
{local} svnadmin create --fs-type=fsfs /data/svn-local-repos/go-dev

and the repository skeletons appears.

I successfully dump my BDB repos:

        svnadmin dump /data/svn-repos/go-dev > go-dev.dmp
        * Dumped revision 0.
        * Dumped revision 1.

Next I try to load a dump of the BDB repository to the local FSFS:

        /opt/svn/bin/svnadmin load /data/svn-local-repos/go-dev < go-dev.dmp
        <<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 1
                * adding path : trunk ... done.
                <skipping scads more output>

Next I try to load the dump into the nfs repos (which I successfully created)

        svnadmin load /data/svn-nfs-repos/go-dev < go-dev.dmp
        svn: Error opening db lockfile
        svn: Can't get shared lock on file '/data/svn-nfs-repos/go-dev/locks/db.lock': No locks available

Ooops. Can anyone tell me why it failed and how I can successfully convert from BDB to NFS+FSFS on linux? Is there an nfs trick I
am missing out on?
