Ticket #5568 (new defect)
unable to perform some svn operations on shared folders from guest

In the development, I need to use some collaboration system whose gui client in windows sucks. So I plan to share the project direcotries with my guest gentoo and then use the command line client in unix instead.
However, because the client depends on the result of 'svn status' and my netbeans uses its own SCM instead of the native one, I have to do this manually, which fails.
This is the error message when I perform some svn operation like 'svn add':
svn: Can't move '.svn/tmp/entries' to '.svn/entries': Operation not permitted
This will never happen if the underlying file system is local since I care little about anything inside the .svn directory. I try to chmod it 777 and find that somehow its permission will get "reverted" before svn starts its job.
The shared folders are mounted manually with default options. I can do whatever I wish but not with svn, which sounds weird. I hope this does help.
BTW, vbox rocks!
