Help with Apache+Subversion+repositories on a Samba share

I have googled a lot about this issue but could not find anything that
could help me. My apologies if this subject was already discussed a

I installed and configured Apache and Subversion in a Linux box in
order to do some tests with repositories in a Samba share. I mounted
the share and created some repositories, then activated the httpd
server. But all I can do is to browse the repositories (using a web
browser) and check outs. When I try to commit something, Subversion
gives me:

  ccidral@m195601-ubuntu:~/ens$ svn status
  A a-text-file
  ccidral@m195601-ubuntu:~/ens$ svn commit -m "My first commit"
  svn: Commit failed (details follow):
  svn: Can't open file
Permission denied

It's likely a problem with read/write permissions on the repository.
However everything seems to be correct, and I can't figure out what's
wrong. The transactions are created but it seems that they cannot be
read. As you can see below, the transactions remain in the repository.

  root@m195601-ubuntu:/mnt/development/APPS/CRM/TEMP/ens# svnadmin lstxns .

The storage media is a NAS server. Below is the command I have
executed to mount the share.

  root@m195601-ubuntu:/mnt# mount -t cifs -o
//$/APPS/CRM/TEMP repositories

There's a group called nas and it's used to mount the share (gid=nas).
Apache is configured to run as the user ccidral which is in the nas
group. Below is what's in httpd.conf:

  User ccidral
  Group nas

And below are the current permissions on the repository. Note that I'm
listing the dir as ccidral, so it has proper permissions.

  ccidral@m195601-ubuntu:/mnt/development/APPS/CRM/TEMP/ens$ ls -l
  total 1
  drwxrwxrwx 2 root nas 0 2006-01-17 10:46 conf
  drwxrwxrwx 1 root nas 0 2006-01-17 10:46 dav
  drwxrwxrwx 1 root nas 0 2006-01-17 10:46 db
  -r-xr-Sr-t 1 root nas 2 2006-01-17 10:46 format
  drwxrwxrwx 1 root nas 0 2006-01-17 10:46 hooks
  drwxrwxrwx 2 root nas 0 2006-01-17 10:46 locks
  -rwxrwSrwt 1 root nas 229 2006-01-17 10:46 README.txt

Some version info: Subversion 1.3.0 (r17949); Apache 2.0.55; Samba

May somebody shed some light. If you need more information, please let me know.
