Thank you very much for the hint. This is a quite likely cause. I
don't have the computer at hand, but I indeed created the repository
with "sudo svncreate" and if apache needs to write to it, I can easily
believe that the rights are not sufficient to do so.
Still, it would help a lot if the error message was more descriptive
than it was (I would then figure out what to do myself).

Thank you for the precise analysis.
