okay, I'm afraid people will want to beat me because of this setup, but
please do hear me out :P

I have a svn rep on one in /home/bringa/svn_rep/notes2. Now I'm working
as user Bringa, in /home/bringa/n2, doing everything through
file:///home/bringa/svn_rep/notes2, which works fine. However, I wanted
to access this rep through another user on the same box. I've checked
permissions.. all the way up from bringa in home to the db dir in
notes2, world had r / even r-x for directories rights. The other user
can cd into that dir, cat all files and so on. However, if I try this:
otheruser@<that box>:~/temp$ svn checkout

I get this:
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///home/bringa/svn_rep/notes2'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
Permission denied

I don't see what I'm doing wrong.. and yes I know I should be beaten for
putting my repository inside another user's homedir, but it should
theoretically work, no? The exact same command, executed as bringa in,
say, /home/bringa/temp (no Daniel, tab completion won't work inside
e-mails.. damnit :P), works as expected.

What's my obvious oversight?
