Pushing into shared repository without trees on SMB share is not using repository to store revisions

It shouldn't, so we should figure out why it thinks it needs to do that.
I assume you did something like:

bzr init-repo --no-trees Z:/mounted/network/share/

Or are you using //host/network/share (I thought bzr currently didn't
work properly with those paths)

Also, are you sure that the repository path is visible in the filesystem?

Like it could be that you did "bzr init-repo --no-trees /srv/repo" and
then are only exporting "/srv/repo/branches" => Z:/ or something like that.

The repository needs to be visible to the client.

It is *also* possible that we have a bug if the repository is at the
root of a directory. I thought we squashed all of those bugs, but we did
have them in the past.
