I had posted my issued on a wrong list but Jani Averach was kind enough to
tell me a solution. Find below complete information on the issue.


Hi, I replied to your message to the svn-dev list.

I don't know if you are a subscriber of that list or not, so I am
replying privately to you also.

BTW, where do you find that issue-list address? This address is meant
to be for internal bugtracking purposeses, general issues/bug reports
should go to user-svn.

So my reply to your post was:

   Any changes that your F: drive is a network share (mapped networkd

   If so, do NOT run SVN repository on shared drive. Put it on the
   local disk, and everything should be fine.


BR, Jani

F: is just a partition on my hard-disk. I have 4 partition on the box.

c:\windows - XP Files
d:DATA - General data files
e:softwares - all softwares are installed out here instead of \program
files\ . Makes it easy to manage.
f:\repos - I am using it only for Subversion repository so that backup are
easy to do.

This drive is not network mapped. I mean you cannot access it from any
machine in the networked. The only folder on this machine that can be
accessed by other people is the SHareDocs which is present in C;\. Disk
management shows it as:

Type: Local disk
Filesystem: NTFS.

Am I missing something?
