[Samba] Subversion working copy via Samba

I don't know is this a Samba or Subversion (or my faulty config) related
issue so I'll start here. I'd like to clarify that the need to have just one
working copy (and not one per user on his/her local disk) is vital here.
- Active Directory-enabled environment
- Server is connected to AD, users are synced up
- All users are in AD group "Production" which is available as a local group
on the server via Winbind
- There's a /data/html on an ACL-enabled EXT3 volume,
# file: data/html
# owner: root
# group: production
# flags: -s-
# stop SVN working copies from going belly-up
delete readonly = yes
path = /data/html
read only = No
browseable = Yes
force group = production
valid users = @production
force create mode = 0664
force directory mode = 0775
inherit acls = Yes
- check out a working copy to this directory
- allow only members of @Production to access it
- allow various Subversion clients to be used via Samba on the working copy
- allow for using SVN directly on the server (not via Samba, MUCH faster for
large operations like checkout) without the need to fix permissions
Now, I get most of it done:
- I login via SSH and do a checkout
- access the share via Samba (Linux, Fedora 14), it works
- can commit/update/delete on either side, no issues
But, as soon as my co-worker on Win7/TortoiseSVN deleted a file (via Samba),
he gets (Q:\ points to this share):
Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:
Error bumping revisions post-commit (details follow):
In directory 'Q:\webs\<censored>\trunk\images'
Error processing command 'committed' in 'Q:\webs\<censored>\trunk\images'
Can't set file
read-write: Access is denied.
and from then on, the working copy is so badly damaged (locked, missing
files/directories), etc. that I haven't found a way to fix it.
Examining the permissions on the file in question, it seems Subversion sets
the access mode to r--r--r-- as to avoid tampering (?) and the Windows
client isn't able to change it. The other reason might be that one user is
changing the file another user owns, but they're in the same group.
So, my question is: is there anybody out there who has a similar setup which
in fact runs OK? Also, am I missing something obvious here (except for the
weird SVN usage pattern)?
