commit-email.pl and elevated gid

I'm running svnserve 1.1 under control of xinetd on mac os x 10.3.8.
Xinetd is configured to run svnserve as a non-root user (uid 1029 and
gid 80). However, I've found that commit-email.pl is running with an
effective gid of 0. This causes commit-email.pl to abort when setting
up the pipe to sendmail because perl's tainting mechanism doesn't like
the elevated group privileges. Why is commit-email.pl running with
egid set to 0? If I configure xinetd to run svnserve with group 0 then
all is well. What am I doing wrong?
