It doesn't matter how many clients emacs is forking.

As soon as emacs runs an svn client that tries to access the working copy
at the same as any other svn client (run by emacs or something else), one
of the clients will run into an error if exclusive locking mode is enabled.

Not sure if this is really relevant but using a windows network share
with sqlite is discouraged by the sqlite faq:

  People who have a lot of experience with Windows tell me that file
  locking of network files is very buggy and is not dependable. If what
  they say is true, sharing an SQLite database between two or more Windows
  machines might cause unexpected problems.

It's possible that this extends to Samba but the wording doesn't make
this entirely clear.
