I gave up and made the repository owned by the 'apache' user.

I think one has two choices:

1. Make the db files group writable, and give the user 'apache' group access
to the db files, and change the umask value for the httpd process to have
group write enabled. The last item can be done in the init script that
starts Apache.

2. Make the db files owned by the apache user. This avoids making changes to
the Apache system.

Oddly, my post to the user's mailing list doesn't appear in the archive
accessible from subversion.tigris.org. But I found it here:
