You are using APR from apache 2.0.50?

I suspect you will have the sticky bit set throughout your repository and
working copy dirs.

This is due to a bug in the APR shipped with apache 2.0.50 and svn

Either upgrade svn to the head of the 1.1.x branch (contains a workaround
for the bug) or upgrade apr to the head of it's 0.9.x branch (or take the
version from the soon-to-be-released apache 2.0.51) AND REBUILD SVN. Merely
installing updated apr shared libs is not sufficient.
