Subversion and the uchg flag on Mac OS X

If this belongs in the develop group, let me know.


We have recently switched over to a Mac OS X 10.6.7 server using SMB so our
windows computers can access the files on the server. To our dismay, we
have discovered that Mac OS X is turning on a flag called "uchg" whenever a
file is made read only which is what occurs with the entries file in the
.svn directory. This flag make the file unchangeable (immutable is what
they call it). Anyway, after that happens, any time subversion tries to
move tmp/entries to entries, it fails.


Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this and perhaps could a
change be requested to perhaps change the mode on the file back to writable
before the move is attempted?


Thank you
