My understanding (but I'll need to check with our SVN gurus) is that the
samba anonymous system uses a patch export and application process.  Ie,
if the same patches are applied in the same order, then you must get the
same repository (which beat the previous solution of 'rsync the db').
Or something like that...

I can try and pin down some details if that would help.
