[REVIEW] Subsection "Choosing a Data Store"

i would like to ask a little bit about the subsection "FSFS" and the
Table 5.1 Repository data store comparison:

Table 5.1.1:
"Faster overall, but finalization delay may cause client timeouts"

Subsection "FSFS":
"FSFS also has a longer delay when finalizing a commit, which could"
"in extreme cases cause clients to time out while waiting for a response".

Does this mean there is bug containing in SVN for FSFS or is this just
to give a hint about an "known issue" or does this have other
reasons...may be this can produce unstableness if read by users...

AFAIK in SVN 1.5 there exist an opportunity to improve the commit speed
if you put the transaction area to an local hard drive whereas the db
area is living on a different kind of storage (e.g. SAN)...described in
the blog...

May be someone can enlighten me a little bit about the above....

Thanks in advance...

Kind regards
