Problem with svn and users over multiple machines

Err. Well. User error :-P

I don't know exactly what I did wrong, but I suspect that the problems I
saw might have partly been due to "Simple File Sharing" being *off* on
one of the machines and *on* on the other. Having started again from
scratch and ensuring Simple File Sharing is *off*, with the mount table

$ mount
C:/cygwin/bin on /usr/bin type ntfs (binary,auto)
C:/cygwin/lib on /usr/lib type ntfs (binary,auto)
C:/cygwin on / type ntfs (binary,auto)
C: on /mnt/c type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
T: on /mnt/t type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)

and just using normal svn file commands such as
$ svn co file:///mnt/t/shared/svn/test .

it appears to be working perfectly on both machines, no fiddling with
users, passwd files, or anything else required.

Thanks anyway, Larry, I appreciate the time you put in to help.
