Commits failing: Permission denied on transactions directory

We seem to be having an intermittant problem with commits failing on
our repository. Here is the error message:

subversion/libsvn_client/commit.c:832: (apr_err=13)
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:368: (apr_err=13)
svn: Can't open file '/Users/apache2/repository/src/svnroot/db/
transactions/1269-4.txn/node.0.0': Permission denied
subversion/clients/cmdline/util.c:380: (apr_err=13)
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
subversion/clients/cmdline/util.c:380: (apr_err=13)
svn: '/Users/tprindle/Documents/svn/users/svn-commit.4.tmp'

The permissions in the transactions directory then look like this:

drw-rw-rw- 2 apache2 apache2 68 15 Aug 16:54 1269-1.txn/
drw-rw-rw- 2 apache2 apache2 68 15 Aug 16:56 1269-2.txn/
drw-rw-rw- 2 apache2 apache2 68 15 Aug 16:56 1269-3.txn/
drw-rw-rw- 2 apache2 apache2 68 15 Aug 16:56 1269-4.txn/

Sometimes it will eventually commit after several attempts. Also,
restarting the apache server seems to temporarily fix the problem.

Relevant versions:

OS: Mac OS X 10.3.9
Subversion: 1.2.1
Repository Type: FSFS
Apache Server: 2.0.54

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Thanks, Erik
