Could be:
A) you are lucky
B) you haven't discovered the corruption yet
C) you are less likely to observe the problems due to a particular
software stack (as Larry explained)
D) you were lucky until shortly before that phone started ringing... ;)

I've been to plenty of sites that have been running CVS repositories
over NFS for 'years' that suddenly find corruption - I don't personally
know why it hits, but I know running on a SAN or a local disk doesn't
cause it.
