svnadmin --fstype fsfs create fails over NFS

Running svnadmin create on a Solaris 8 platform works fine when the
target is on a local disk.

The same command, however, fails as follows when the target is on a
NetApp device mounted via NFS:

> svnadmin --fs-type fsfs create Foo
svn: Repository creation failed
svn: Creating db lock file
svn: Can't open file 'Foo/locks/db.lock': Not owner

As far as I can tell, there are no ownership problems involved. so the
error message appears to be misleading. Doing the sequence "mkir Foo
Foo/db; touch Foo/db/db.lock" from the same directory works fine.

This is with svnadmin, version 1.1.4 (r13838) built from sources with
gcc on a SPARC Solaris 8 box.

My guess is that we're hitting a timing issue over NFS, and perhaps
mounting with the proper option incantation might resolve this. I've
searched the FAQ and mailing list archive, but in vain. Any and all
suggestions welcome.
