svnserve selectively refusing connections from users?

Until today we haven't had any problems with our users accessing our
repositories, but now we have a user who for some reason can't connect.
Until today, the user was able to access the repository. Now, when he
tries to run "svn update" on an existing checkout, or"svn co" and point
it to our Subversion server, he always gets a "connection refused"
message:

svn: Can't connect to host 'Server.local': Connection refused

Oddly enough, "svn status" connects, but it gives the wrong output (it
claims the server is at repository revision 1 when it's actually at
revision 3, and doesn't say what has been changed since revision 1).

More details:

1. Both the client and server are running the latest production release
of Mac OS X (10.3.4)
2. Both the client and server are running Subversion 1.0.5
3. The client and server are both on the local LAN
4. The server is running at the time as a background daemon
5. None of our other users are having this problem
6. I'm able to access the server just fine from the loopback device
(localhost)
7. Deleting the user's ".subversion" directory in his home directory
did not help
8. The user can connect to the server using SSH with no problems
9. We're using the plain old svn protocol, not svn+ssh or http
10. This worked until today, and I didn't mess with the software on my
side

What do I have to do (or does the user have to do) to make it so this
user can connect to the server again? Help?
