SVN commit error - code checked out to Windows XP drive mapped to an Ubuntu Samba share

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to commit changes to SVN that are on a mapped drive - the drive is mapped to a Samba share on a Ubuntu (9.04) server.

"Looks like repositories checked out onto mapped drives aren't recommended:

From http://old.nabble.com/Log-entry-missing-%27name%27-attribute-td25657118.html..

The manuals explicitly warn against using network shares for working copies. Especially because of these kind of possible errors.

oh well!

EDIT - RESOLVED!

On further investigation, this looks like it could be a bug with using a working copy located on the root of a drive..

I moved the share up a level, and re-mapped the drive so it contains a single directory, which holds the working copy and commits now work!

Hope that saves you some time :o)"
