What is m/c?

Working copies are not necessarily portable between systems, in
particular not between MS Windows and POSIX systems, because the
translation of line endings has different results there, so this setup
is prone to errors. Another thing, where I'm not sure if that could also
cause problems is that the working copies contain an SQLite database,
which might also differ between systems (I'm not sure in this point, but
a Berkeley database does differ). Keep your working copies local.

Another thing is that the database inside the WC requires file locking
to work, which is not always guaranteed to 100% for network filesystems.
Another reason to keep working copies local.

Question: You mention host and guest operating systems, is anything of
that relevant? If I understand you right, I would think that all you
need is a Win7/64-bit system and a Samba share. Is this fault even
reproducible or did it occur just once?

Which URL did you check out? Also, I seem to remember some problems with
certain paths (root of a share), where exactly did you check out the
working copy?

Thanks for the great description! Not everybody takes the instructions
to report what they did and to search the web seriously...
