problem is that some files in .svn directory(I think text-base or
something like that) are read-only, and svn commit tries to do something
to them. there is no problem with svn running same time, just "not owner"
error.

svn: Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:
svn: Problem running log
svn: Error bumping revisions post-commit (details follow):
svn: in directory '/opt/apache/htdocs/svnt'
svn: start_handler: error processing command 'committed' in
'/opt/apache/htdocs/svnt'
svn: error replacing text-base: ChangeLog
svn: Not owner
svn: svn_io_set_file_executable: failed to change executability of file
'/opt/apache/htdocs/svnt/ChangeLog'

well I'll bet that tells you more than me! :( lousy explainer :)
