This indeed is the problem. I'm sure you're aware the error message
isn't so great, and it will be fixed. :-)

Is there any documentation on the permissions required for the
Subversion server to run? It seems strange (but I don't know anything
about Berkeley DB) that db/ has to be _writable_ by httpd in order to
allow _read-only_ access via HTTP or WebDAV. Is this a Berkeley DB
issue or a Subversion one?
