Folder permissions issue

From: Olivier Sirven <olivier_at_elma.fr>

I have the following setup on server side :
- debian sarge
- subversion 1.4.0 (home build)
- httpd 2.0.59
- gcc 3.3.5

Repositories are located under /home/svn

For some days now there is a permissions error under the db/transactions
directory causing the commit to fail with the following error:
svn: Can't open file '/home/svn/repos/db/transactions/2049-1.txn/node.0.0':
Permission denied

This directory does not have execution permissions:
drw-rwSrw- 2 nobody root 4096 2006-10-16
16:25 /home/svn/repos/db/transactions/2049-1.txn

How can it be? I never had this issue with subversion 1.3.x so I guess it is
related to 1.4 version....at the beginning it happened from times to times
but now it is almost at every commit I try to make....

I took a look at the archive of the list without finding the solution to this
problem but it seems to be a known issue (eg.
The default umask of my system is 0002 and there is not a single call to umask
function in the scripts I use....
Do I have to fill a bug report or does someone know how to fix this issue?
