I can suggest a couple of solutions:

1. If you can run servers, then simply run Apache on a high-numbered port
as one of yourselves, using your own user database for authentication,
and use ra_dav exclusively. This is definitely the easiest.

2. Assuming you're both in the same group, wrap svn in a script that
resets your umask to 007 or 002 before running it. What I've done is
create a 'svn' group, and set the mode of the db directory to g+s so
files I create there are g+rw and group 'svn'.

Yes, it's a known bug, in that I mentioned it several months ago on
the list and nothing really became of it.
