[meta-freescale] bitbaking over a network share

hello everyone,
as am i running out of disk space in the virtual machine I am trying yocto (it has already chewed on 87GB!),
I copied all my yocto directory to a network share (cifs to be precise).
After the copy completed I tried to bitbake the meta-toolchain as: 

$ cd <yocto_root>/sources/poky
$ . ./oe_init_build_env
build$ vi conf/local.conf
build$ bitbake meta-toolchain

after a few minutes of inactivity ('top' doesn't show much cpu usage either) I Ctrl+C the bitbake process and get the following:

nass at starland /mnt/lvm/sources/poky/build $ bitbake meta-toolchain
^CTraceback (most recent call last):
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/bin//bitbake", line 272, in <module>
    ret = main()
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/bin//bitbake", line 244, in main
    cooker = bb.cooker.BBCooker(configuration, idle, initialenv)
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/cooker.py", line 143, in __init__
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/cooker.py", line 198, in loadConfigurationData
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/cooker.py", line 880, in parseConfigurationFiles
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/fetch2/__init__.py", line 260, in fetcher_init
    revs = bb.persist_data.persist('BB_URI_HEADREVS', d)
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/persist_data.py", line 210, in persist
    return SQLTable(cachefile, domain)
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/persist_data.py", line 59, in __init__
    % table)
  File "/mnt/lvm/sources/poky/bitbake/lib/bb/persist_data.py", line 66, in _execute
    return self.cursor.execute(*query)

shall I assume a network share is not liked by yocto? 
Is there smth else I could do in order to use a network share?

Thank you for your help,
