after upgrading to 1.7.x i've noticed some bug in svn lock machinery.
1). create from root a repo and change owner/mod to svnadmin.svnusers.
# svnadmin create test.svn
2). from user that belongs to svnusers group try to do this:
$ svn co file://<$fullpath>/test.svn test.wc
the strace shows that svn tries to chmod() on db directory.
