Permission issue creating transations on Solaris (1.2.0, fsfs)

I am using the 1.2.0 package from sunfreeware, for Solaris 9. I had no
problem whatsoever using the dbfs backend, using either 1.1.3 or 1.2.0.

I have created a repository in the fsfs format, I can load it with a dump
file, checkout from the repository through apache, but I get a "funny"
permission error on commit:

$ svn ci -m 'test fsfs'
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't open file
'/externe.u0/svn/foo/db/transactions/14-6.txn/node.0.0': Permission denied

That is, it creates the transaction directory, but cannot populate it. The
direct reason is the permissions on those transaction directories, lacking
an x bit:

% ls -l foo/db/transactions/
total 12
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 10:56 14-1.txn
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 11:09 14-2.txn
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 11:09 14-3.txn
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 13:37 14-4.txn
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 13:38 14-5.txn
drw-rwSrw- 2 apache apache 512 Jun 16 13:39 14-6.txn

I could work around the problem by putting a default ACL on the
transactions/ directory:

% setfacl -m d:u::rwx,d:g::r-x,d:o:r-x foo/db/transactions/

And now on the client:

$ svn ci -m 'test fsfs'
Adding bar
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 15.

I checked that the Debian/x86 package of 1.2.0 does not have this issue.

Looking at create_txn_dir() in libsvn_fs_fs/fs_fs.c, it looks like
svn_io_dir_make() is called with permissions APR_OS_DEFAULT, which should
cause it to obey the umask. Attaching a gdb to the any httpd process and
calling umask() seems to show the expected 022 value, which cannot explain
the problem.

Any idea ?
