CIFS has a completely different permission model than Subversion expects
on a Linux server. On top of that, the NetApp has a different
implementation of CIFS than a real Windows server; so, who knows what
limitations and quirks it has.

I really recommend not using NAS for the repository. If you can't keep
it local, try using iSCSI or an equivalent SAN configuration.
