[OpenAFS] FSFS Subversion repository on OpenAFS 1.3.84 problems

	We are running a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 AFS fileserver with several 
Windows XP and Linux clients.  Both the OpenAFS server and clients are all 
version 1.3.84 and authentication is handled by KerberosV.  We have a 
Subversion repository that is being served via OpenAFS and it is problematic.  
OpenAFS on the linux workstations usually requires a restart to see some or 
all changes to the repository made by other workstations.  OpenAFS on the 
Windows XP clients occasionally requires a restart due to an inability to 
access some files within the repository; access fails with an error message: 
"The system cannot find message text for message number.....".

	Though I have not been able to locate it, I recall reading a post to this 
list about a similar problem with CVS + AFS.  I believe the solution was a 
patch to the client source.  I'm about to try downgrading the server and 
clients to 1.2.13.  Is anyone else using either 1.2.X or 1.3.X OpenAFS with 
Subversion successfully?

Thanks very much,
