By using svn+ssh://, you're launching a temporary private 'svnserve'
process on the remotehost running as *you* (assuming that you've
authenticated to ssh as yourself.) So unless you're authenticating to
ssh as user 'subversion', of course your 'svnserve' process doesn't have
read-write access to the db files.

Have you read the 'svnserve' documentation in chapter 6 of the book? It
explains this stuff in detail.
