Hello all,

I answer to this old mail because I was facing the same bug and I
found what was wrong.

Actually, in my case, this is neither a subversion nor an apache bug
but a php one. A php script was setting an umask without execution
rights (0111) and due to this bug, the apache process kept this umask
and when a subversion commit request tried to create a directory it
was unusable (0111 umask -> no execution rights on created files).

This problem was solved by adding a <?php umask(0022); ?> script in
auto_append_file directive of php.ini.

It seems that this bug will be fixed in next php5.1 release:
