OK. It starts to make sense.

The server is NetBSD 2.0 running svn 1.1.3.

I start the server with
     svnserve -d -r /home/svn/repositories

The configuration file at
looks like this:
     anon-access = none
     auth-access = write
     password-db = passwd
     realm = dk.hoerbuch.franz

All files are owned by the user (svn) that runs svnserve.

If I do
     su svn
     svnserve -X -r /home/svn/repositories
I do not get any output when I run svn on the client.

Hope this is enough information.
