Can't find a temporary directory

please help.

I've set up a 'svnserve' server for the very first time.
It's activated by xinetd via
service svn
        socket_type = stream
        wait = no
        user = svn
        server = /usr/bin/svnserve
        port = 3690
        server_args = -i -r /Save/SVN
        #Allow access from the local network (ie, 134.130.161.*)
        only_from =
        log_on_failure = ATTEMPT HOST


I can do 'svn list' from a client machine.
But as soon as I say
svn co ...
I get
svn: Can't find a temporary directory

First, I have no problems to check out a foreign repository
from this client. So, the client svn seems OK.
In addition I have set break points at any places
in the client svn where this error message is produced,
but the program never passes these breakpoints.
So most probably this error message comes from
svnserve (at the remote server).
What might be the reason. Of course the '/tmp'
directory is writable by anybody on both machines.

Both, client and server, use a freshly built version 1.1.3
of subversion.

Many thanks for a hint,
