Why do you stop apache to dump your repository? 'svnadmin dump' is just
another process that is reading data, no different than apache doing a
checkout. Repository readers don't block any other readers or writers,
and almost never blocked themselves. As long as you run the dump as the
apache-user, you shouldn't have any permissions or umask problems.
