I have also seen it happen on solaris 10.  Has anyone else seen this? If it is due to network
flakiness then perhaps svn should retry to work around this transparently, and thus be more
robust? Perhaps it could retry up to 3 times with a sleep a 1 second between retries?

While working copies on networks filesystems should generally work, such use is strongly discouraged.
No. There is no network filesystem (CIFS) here. What about when I am using solaris? That's
proof that it cannot be due to CIFS. The internet is being used because that it is where the
timestamp server is. When the code tries to call out to that timeserver it has to travel via
the corporate network, including navigating via the internet proxy. This network call fails
randomly due a flaky network.
