I think the recently release subversion-1.7.9-2 package will fix your
problem. It does not fix all uses of UNC paths, especially those passed
on the command line (e.g., "svn status //server/share" or "svn export
//server/share") because those require teaching libapr1 about UNC paths,
which I haven't done (yet?).
Still, I think it will support your use case of the config directory on
a UNC share.
Please give it a shot and let me know.
