Short answer: as root, "chmod -R o-t /path/to/repository"

Long answer: you've fallen prey to a bug in the APR shipped with
recent versions of svn, which causes directories to be accidentally
created with the sticky bit. Because the sticky bit is erroneously
set on your FSFS repository, you're not allowed to overwrite files
owned by other users, even though you have write access to the

svn 1.1.0-rc3 will ship with a workaround for the APR bug. In the
meantime, it's not terribly hard to work around, since FSFS doesn't
make new directories once the repository has been created.
