unusual permission denied (really)

From: Mike Leary <leary_at_blarg.net>

short version:

Why would I get permission denied in a working copy with a local
repository?

sh: ./svn-commit.tmp: Permission denied
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: system(' svn-commit.tmp') returned 32256

background:

I recently upgraded to slackware 11 and in so doing my compiled apache
httpd got out of sync with the ssl libs, so I upgraded to httpd 2.2.3
and subversion 1.4.2; compiled from source.

svn seemed to work fine over the network using apache/ssl, and dav
seemed to be working fine with apache/ssl.

It seems the only local user, however, who can check in anything is
root. I've followed all the suggestions in the manual and that I could
find on the web, but I got the same error whether I checked out using
file: or https: (I'm not using svnserve.)

So I back down to httpd 2.0.59 and svn 1.3.2. Same problem.

Here is a test case that repros with either setup.

$ cat do
rm -rf repos tmp
svnadmin create ./repos
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
svn co file:///home/me/junk/repos
cd repos
touch afile
svn add afile
svn ci

$ . do
Checked out revision 0.
A afile
sh: ./svn-commit.tmp: Permission denied
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: system(' svn-commit.tmp') returned 32256

Any debugging suggestions most welcome.

Here's the tail end of 'strace svn ci'
