Problem with working copy on mapped network drive

Hi,

I'm encountering a problem with having my working copy on a mapped
network drive (on a Novell server).

When I check out my working copy to the network drive, it bonks:

  C:\>svn co "svn://davy01.myco.com/Fax Email/Trunk"
N:\Nds\Test\Fax\Source

  svn: Can't move 'N:/Nds/Test/Fax/Source/.svn/tmp/entries' to
       'N:/Nds/Test/Fax/Source/.svn/entries': Cannot create a file
       when that file already exists.

but I can check out to the local drive:

  C:\>svn co "svn://davy01.myco.com/Fax Email/Trunk" C:\temp
  A C:\TEMP\ARSSA
  A C:\TEMP\ARSSA\sql
  A C:\TEMP\ARSSA\sql\arssa_vw.sql
  etc . . .
  Checked out revision 374.

Updates to existing working copies on the network drive fail with the
same error message.

I know, you're saying "just check out a _local_ working copy and leave
us in peace". I store my private working copy on the
network for several reasons - automatic backup of my uncommitted
changes, and the ability to work on my WC from several
different PCs.

I've had this problem in the past, but then it went away. Now it's
back. I'm not sure what changed. We have had some Novell server
upgrades recently, and I have upgraded Subversion. I'm not sure what
version of Netware, but I believe that it is recent. I'm having these
problems from Windows 2000 and XP.

I just upgraded to Subversion 1.1.4. I uninstalled 1.1.4, then went
back to 1.1.0, then 1.1.1, (1.1.2 install didn't work - missing
iconv.dll), 1.1.3. Same problem. In all cases, I can check out a
working copy to my local disk.

I had turned on the Windows Indexing service, but I have now turned that
back off and since rebooted.

Note: my repository and svnserve server are fine. The (BDB) repository
is on the local hard drive of the svn server, as recommended. My
problem is in checking out working copies on to Novell network drives.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much for your help.

Christian
