As everyone has been trying to tell you, this can only happen of your
non-hacker user has access to the server's filesystem in general, and
specifically write access to the SVN repository files.

If you allow such access, then of course your non-hacker users can screw
up the repository. Of course, /I/ would fire (and sue) any server
administrator who did that, but that's a personal point of view, of course.

Hmm. Maybe I should point out that Subversion isn't like Visual
SourceSafe, and unlike VSS, Subversion doesn't require that its users
have physical read/write access to the repository files.
