Well.. Read "read-write" (It seems to open the file for reading _AND_
writing) and look at your rights again..
With -r--r--r-- noone is allowed to write to that file.. Maybe you
messed up the rights with a previous attempt to share the repository?
Something like chmod a=r instead of chmod g+rw or something?

I don't think that is the case. See above..

Did you try to set a correct umask for both users that gives your group
read/write rights?
