You're not meant to share working copies between users. Doing so
negates many of the reasons for using version control in the first
place. You're looking at a pretty standard setup here - user 2 can't
access user 1's files. It's pretty basic security.

There is also a known issue with SVN 1.5 and Samba shares. It's a bug
in Samba exposed by SVN 1.5 and later, and the latest Samba does not
have this bug.
