You're accessing your repository over an NFS mount? Please stop unless
you're quite comfortable with the idea of totally corrupting the
underlying berkeley db database. This is all over the documentation, if
you want to access the repository from another machine you'll have to
use svn+ssh://, svn://, or http:// access, file:// (or svnlook,
svnadmin, or anything else that directly opens the repository) simply
will not work.
