svn: Can't get exclusive lock on file write-lock

From: jehan procaccia <jehan.procaccia_at_int-evry.fr>

I am trying to give in each users homedir an svn subdir. the svn server
mounts homedir through NFS, and as mentioned from the FAQ
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#nfs I did use FSFS svn repos format !
Howerver when importing my first projet I cant this error:

$ svn import ./testsvn/ -m "import initial de testsvn"
svn: Can't get exclusive lock on file
'/mci/mci/procacci/repos/db/write-lock': Resource temporarily unavailable

Now write-lock is owned by svn "superuser" (the one that spawned the
svnserve process through its ssh authorized_keys file containing for
each users somthing like: command="svnserve -t --tunnel-user=procacci" )
and I fiexed the group to the group of procacci user (mci) who has also
write access to the file
[root@share /mci/mci/procacci/repos/db]
$ ls -l write-lock
-rw-rw-r-- 1 svn mci 0 oct 19 23:28 write-lock

what is wrong ? , perhaps lockd and/or statd ? on the nfs server ? , or
on client side ? something else ?
