bzr and ntfsmount (fuse) issues?

Under XP using cygwin and snapshot I created a bzr repository.
Spending most of my time in Linux, I tried to fuse-mount my ntfs partition
and see if bzr from linux could work on the bzr repository that I created
under XP.

# ntfsmount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/winxp -o fmask=0111,dmask=0,
# cd /mnt/winxp/<snip>/bzr-test
# bzr status
bzr: ERROR: exceptions.OSError: [Errno 95] Operation not
supported: '/mnt/winxp/<snip>/bzr-test/.bzr/checkout/stat-cache.9287.transmuter.tmp'
  at /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/bzrlib/ line 77
  in commit

What I'm confused about is the location, see the bzr --version

Bazaar (bzr) 0.9.0dev0
  bzr checkout, revision 1907
  revid: pqm at
Using python interpreter: /usr/bin/python2.4
Using python standard library: /usr/lib/python2.4
Using bzrlib: /home/tanner/projects/bazaar-ng/

Shouldn't the error come
from /home/tanner/projects/bazaar-ng/ ?
