Malformed XML and Bugos Date problems

Subversion does not work for me with the working copy stored on NFS.

The setup:
- Server: Debian stable with svn-1.2.0 from unstable and local fsfs repository
- Client: SuSE with svn-1.2.1 (or Debian, identical to Server) and NFS-mounted
  checkout target directory.

Running "svn checkout svn+ssh://server/proj/repository/trunk/project" on the
client checks out some files ("A"-lines), then aborts with
"svn: Malformed XML: mismatched tag at line 19"

The repository is also NFS-imported at the client; If I run
"svn checkout svn+ssh://client/proj/repository/trunk/project" on the
client, I get the same problem. The same happens also for
"svn checkout file:///proj/repository/trunk/project"

This is somehow nondeterministic, i.e. it once happened to me that the
file:///-checkout was successful. Sometimes the error happens at other
positions, once it said without any "A"-lines:
svn: XML parser failed in 'project'
svn: Malformed XML: junk after document element at line 11

If I chdir from my NFS-mounted directory to /usr/tmp, the project checks out
successfully. The problem seems to be subversion writing to a NFS directory.
According to the FAQ, a working copy on NFS should work. Does anyone have an
idea on how to get this working!?

Second minor problem:
With debian Server+Client, the checkout is really ok (on /tmp or other local
directory). With the SuSE client, it sucessfully sais "Checked out revision 1",
but a subsequent "svn update project" failes with "svn: Bogus date". The file
.svn/entries contains strange "text-time" lines for some files (e.g.
text-time="1942-07-22T15:01:15.219284Z"). Any fix known for this problem?
