If you're serving via Apache, why are you also mapping directly to the
repository via Samba?

Or are you putting a WC stored on a Samba share? If so, why? Sharing a
WC between users & OSes is not recommended and can lead to problems,
especially with permissions.. WCs are really meant to be local to the
user's workstation.
