please help, svn repository stopped working...

Not sure what happened to make it stop...
I had it all setup and everything was working. I'm using svn 1.1.2 with
webdav on an apache 1.3 based server.

It lets me browse the repoistory just fine. It won't let me create any
new project sub directories tho.
I get the same error using tortise on my PC as I do using svn from the
command line on the server directly.

The error in tortise and on the cmdline from linux is:
Can't create directory '/var/www/svn/repo1/db/transactions/21-1.txn':
Permission denied

The error in the apache error log is:
[Tue Apr 12 01:33:10 2005] [error] [client] Could not
create activity /svn/vikingmind/!svn/act/--blah-blah-blah-blah [500, #0]
[Tue Apr 12 01:33:10 2005] [error] [client] could not
begin a transaction [500, #13]
[Tue Apr 12 01:33:10 2005] [error] [client] Can't create
directory '/var/www/svn/repo1/db/transactions/27-1.txn': Permission
denied [500, #13]

I'm using web-dav with repository level permissions.. I can checkout
from the existing repository no problem.
The svn/ repository directory has these permissions recurisively:

drwxrwxrwx 4 apache apache 4096 Apr 12 01:49 svn

(that is everyone can read and write the files)

Please let me know if you have any idea what may have gone wrong.
