Subversion 1.6 with repository on cifs samba share.

I have a problem where Subversion 1.6 doesn't work properly when I mount
repositories over a cifs share. This used to work with subversion 1.4 and
1.5. The only thing I can see that may have changed is the usage of
SQLite, which I believe has problems running over a share. When I mount
the share with the nobrl option (no byte-range locking) it seems to work.
(Otherwise subversion claims that the "database is locked")

My question is a two parter. Firstly, is it possible to get subversion 1.6
working with a cifs share without disabling byte range locking. Otherwise,
if I do disable byte range locking. Is this dangerous? I.e., is there a
possibility of corrupting repositories?

Thanks for your help.
