I havn't Ctrl-C'd during a commit, co, or anything else, but I have
probably stopped it while viewing it online. I *do* access the same
repository via file:// as well as svn+ssh://. Right now they all belong
to the svn group, the www user is a part of the svn group, and I have done
chmod -R g+rwX * on the repositories. I've even played w/ accessing via
the web while i'm in the middle of a commit process and found it pretty
thread safe, which is one reason this confuses me so much.
