Permission denied? The svn 1.2 libraries are trying to create a new
'locks' table in the database, and the operating system's permissions
are somehow preventing that from happening.

(The svn 1.2 libraries are trying to create the locks table, as well
as bump the 'format' file up to '3'.... but it's not happening.)

You're running a locking-related command, and the svn 1.2 libraries
are pointing out that the format file claims the repository hasn't
been 'upgraded' to format 3, which is lock-capabale.
