Can't Chmod Error with File Locking

Hi there,

(This is a re-post, but I no longer believe the original will show up -
validation error on my part)

When I try to lock a file in TortoiseSVN (and other GUI clients as
well), I get an error message like so:

Can't chmod /blah/blah/db/locks/4b6 Operation not permitted. Svn lock
request failed: 500 Internal Server Error

I use Apache2 as the server interface to Subversion, and I run Apache
as svn (instead of www). When I directly access the locks folder as svn
I can chmod all I want to. So I'm not sure why I'm getting this message.

* I use https to access the server (port 443)
* Pretty sure I compiled without BerkleyDB.
* all other operations seem fine.

Permissions in the locks folder (note the numbered directories seem to
appear with each attempt to lock a file)
drwxr-xr-x 6 svn staff 204 Jun 23 19:21 .
drwxr-sr-x 11 svn staff 374 Jun 23 17:42 ..
drwxr-xr-x 3 svn staff 102 Jun 23 19:21 160
drwxr-xr-x 3 svn staff 102 Jun 23 18:28 4b6
drwxr-xr-x 2 svn staff 68 Jun 23 19:21 986
drwxr-xr-x 2 svn staff 68 Jun 23 18:28 a21

Does anyone have any suggestions?
