Why get db/current recreated?

I run an open SVN repository on a multiuser system. I believe I closed
all (but one) ways anyone can mangle the repository.

The file db/current is recreated (I suppose create db/foo; write db/foo;
rm db/current; mv db/foo db/current) everytime a commit happens. This
leaves a hole in my system. Anyone could rename or delete files in db/,
because I must leave db world-writable. If access to this file would
happen "inplace" I could make the directory world-readable and noone
could mange the contents of db/.

BTW: I use fsfs.

Regards, Jörg.
