No problem. When I didn't get a response from the list I traversed the source.
Since I couldn't find anything about it in the source I actually guessed that
it had something to do with APR. Now I know. I now use this script named
svnmkrepos to create new repositories:

#!/bin/sh
svnadmin create --fs-type=fsfs $1
chmod -R o-t $1
chgrp -R svn $1
find $1 -type d | xargs chmod g+s

All Subversion users are in group svn of course.
