svn 1.0.4 svn+ssh:// permissions error on gentoo -- yes, even after svnbook ch06s05

I'm having a permissions problem with an svn+ssh:// access method on a
repository hosted on a gentoo linux server. Since gentoo's portage
installs at /usr/bin/svnserve, i had to make /bin/svnserve be:
umask 002
/usr/bin/svnserve "$@"

I've also done this for the commands svn and svnadmin. /bin is the
first place on the path. I've also done a chmod g+s on the db/ folder
in the repo.


I'm still getting db files created with permissions 755 (ie, umask
022). This would seem to contradict the fundamental operations of a
unix permissions system.
Is it svnserve -t? Is it ssh? Is it BDB? Is it because I curse so

- paul

ps - yes, i know using apache or svnserve -d would make this moot. no,
i can't do that.
