I worked in a web design shop where we had a similar setup -- each
developer had his own working copies in his ~/public_html on our Linux
development server, and accessed them via SMB from Windows.
TortoiseSVN had no trouble checking out or dealing with existing
working copies. I was the only Mac guy, and my svn did not like those
working copies at all. I forget what errors I got, and it was many
versions of Subversion ago, but I resigned myself to logging in to the
Linux server with ssh and doing all svn operations that way on the
command line. I went on the assumption that what I was trying to do
was unsupported so I found a workaround.
