Is cross-platform sharing of a repository via file:/ possible?

From: Raye Raskin <rayer_at_pobox.com>

I created a private win32 repository (/cygdrive/d/repos) to
which I would like to have access when I boot into Linux. This
doesn't seem to be possible even though I can see this windows
filesystem when I'm in Linux.

As part of trying to do this, I noted the following behavior
while still in Windows. Aren't the first two checkout formats
supposed to work? Note the third attempt does work.

C:\tmp>svn co file:///d:/repos/xxxxx/trunk
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///d:/repos/xxxxx/trunk'

C:\tmp>svn co file:///D:/repos/xxxxx/trunk
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///D:/repos/xxxxx/trunk'

C:\>svn co file:///cygdrive/d/repos/xxxxx/trunk
A trunk/Website
A trunk/Website/th_mf42.jpg

Is this a known bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Also, is it even possible to do what I want: Share a windows-
created repository when I'm booted into Linux using some kind
of file:/ URL? Do I have to have matching BDB's, or what?

Thanks.
