Cannot launch svnserver as non root user!

I cannot get the svn server to run as a non root user!

I have setup the configuration as follows
anon access set to none
auth access set to write

The repo is owned by svuser:svgroup with the appropriate sticky bit set on the
db sub directory.

When I run the svn server from xinetd using the above configuration as root
user, the svn server asks me to login for the user name but when I run the
server from xinetd as svuser user with the same configuration I keep getting
the "svn: Malformed network data" error message!

I have setup the svuser user to use bash as it's shell and have specified a
obscure password so nobody can log in.

Any ideas how I solve this problem?

TIA,
Pep.
