Well, sorry, buf that is not what the Subversion FAQ says.

It tells that Berkeley DB does not work over NFS and the pointed document
http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/ref/env/remote.html
tells the same.

So I doubt that it depends on the access method used by the Subversion client.
If the server uses Berkeley but the database is accessed by NFS, you should
probably get the same problem.

Have a nice day!
