Re: Somewhat corrupted repository: Berkeley DB Permissions errors on SVN 1.0.2

the daemon checks to see if that user has permission (in the users
file? in the repository's group? in the crystal ball?), but then acts
on the DB as the user that started the daemon.

a daemon authenticates a local user already if you svn://localhost/...
