recent server upgrade - Permission denied on opening 'locks' table

A few months ago I started using subversion, running my own repository
server on fedora core 3 and all has been fine till now.
The initial server version was 1.1.2. Today I've upgraded my server to
1.2.0. According to the release docs, there is no need for any dump/load
cycle for this upgrade.
However, now I have problems accessing my repository, for example:

  [root@osprey advantage]# svn diff -r head
  svn: Berkeley DB error for filesystem
/srv/svn/repositories/advantage/db while opening 'locks' table:
  Permission denied
  [root@osprey advantage]#

I tried to remove locks on a repository:

  [root@jasmo repositories]# svnadmin rmlocks advantage/db
  svnadmin: Expected format '3' of repository; found format '1'

I don't understand why it thinks there is a format '1' of the database
schema, as version 1.1.2 is the first version I used!
Googling hasn't thrown a whole lot of light on the situation...

Any help appreciated,
alex
