It looks like NFS isn't allowing subversion to lock the file, which
means you're no-go until this problem is resolved.

NFS locking is historically a minefield of bugs and problems;
implementation quality varies greatly. Check to make sure 'statd'
and 'lockd' are running alongside 'nfsd'. Talk with your NFS
