No. Just because subversion is using more filesystem features than type or cat doesn't mean it has a bug. Other posts earlier already told you the server must support locking (type/cat definitely don't use that!).

The mount command you pasted in an earlier post looks not like an NFS mount, but rather a SMB mount - maybe someone else here can say something if there are issues with Samba shares?

Can you tell us the exact command you used for diff/commit? For some reason, it seems to be confused about the file being a directory...
