ra_svn permissions

As far as I'm concerned, I've aborted my attempts to move from ra_dav to
ra_svn. ra_svn may be faster, but I ran into too many permission issues.

The way I run ra_dav:

There is a system user and a group 'svn'. All the repository is owned rw
by svn:svn, directories are chmod g+s svn. Apache runs as svn/svn
obviously, and all is good.

Now if I try ra_svn over ssh:

I add my user to the svn group. When I run anything svn:// onto the
repository, permissions and ownership go crazy, usually ending up in a DB
error, and need to run svnadmin recovery + go through the repository to
set all ownerships and perms right again.

Do you have any suggestions on how I should proceed?
