I might (and probably should) consider alternative methods of
accessing the repository then, this was just such a sweet and
simple way. :)

I suspected this too but so far I haven't found anything that
should cause this. /home/svn/reposname is owned by user svn (group
svn) and we both are in svn group. File permissions there are set
to 770. After this I saw this problem first times I tried a wrapper
script for svn that sets the umask (and this is still used):

umask 002
/usr/local/bin/svn.real $*

This hasn't so far fixed the problem. I'll take an another look at
the Subversion book and maybe try other ways than svn+ssh.
