Importing/Commiting using the net-interface not working

I have a problem importing or commiting any changes to my subversion
repository using the web-interface. I get the following error:
svn: APR does not understand this error code
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
failed to open activity db; check repos perms.

The apache error_log shows:

[Tue Sep 10 13:10:33 2002] [error] [client] Could not create
activity /svn/repos/!svn/act/1de4403a-49aa-0310-bbea-989968142
0a9. [500, #0]
[Tue Sep 10 13:10:33 2002] [error] [client] could not open dbm
files. [500, #120022]
[Tue Sep 10 13:10:33 2002] [error] [client] (22)Invalid
argument: failed to open activity db; check repos perms. [500, #1

The obvious conclusion for me was, that the apache httpd doesn't have
enough rights to write to my repository, however the whole repository path
belongs to user nobody allready (and apache runs as nobody). Even a chmod
-R 777 to the whole path did not help.

Every other operation (checking in/out using the ra_local
interface; checking out using ra_dav) works just fine.

I am using recent developer-versions of apache and subversion, apache is
compiled using the --enable-dav --enable-so --with-dbm=db4
--with-berkeley-db configure-options. The system this whole thing runs on
is an Intel Celeron with Suse Linux 8 (and a patched 2.4.18 Kernel). If
any other information is needed I will be happy to supply it.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance,
