Re: More fun w/ working copy on SMB share

I think subversion on mac os tries to do a file rename or some other
action within the .svn files which smb doesn't support, I suspect
subversion on linux using smbfs has the same issue (though possibly
not with cifs and a samba server with unix extensions). Subversion on
windows does the rename (or which ever action it is) differently,
since the local file systems have the same issue, hence are able to
work on smb shares.
