First of all, I don't know much about Novel servers, but normally with
heterogeneous file servers there is a way of mapping the username from
one environment (windows) to the internal (here: Novel) representation.

So the subversion server is running on the workstation? Or are you
using fsfs?

favourite tool and delete it again? If not, what is the exact error?

You are sure about that? It is the svn client which falls over? What
is the exact command and corresponding error you are receiving?
