subversion repository lock problems

I've recently joined a project that makes extensive use of subversion.
We have begun experiencing routine "corruption" of the repositories.
I believe that the problem is that we are just doing something that
should just not be done, but I want to check first.

The mod_perl application uses perl's SVN::Client to interact with a
repository (fs-type=fsfs) on a remote NetApp server mounted locally
via NFS (servers run RHAS3.0, so we're talking 2.4 era NFS code). We
have multiple apache processes on multiple webservers directly
interacting with a single repository on the remote file server.
That's the bit that just seems wrong to me. Neither svnserve nor
mod_dav is used (unless SVN::Client does some magic behind the scenes
that I'm not seeing).

While I've used subversion for a while on other projects, but I've
never used it in this manner before. Should this implementation
approach actually work?

Thanks!

Thad
