'svn commit' creates a temporary file in the local dir and invokes an editor
on it to edit the commit message. It seems like that fails.

Okay, I guess that even a local user using a remove protocol would fail,
because it still create that temporary file. Also, if you gave it a file with
the commit message it wouldn't try to create one, so it should work.

Now, the question is why can only one user create a file? After all, it
already worked with 'svnadmin create' and 'svn checkout', right? I suspect
some umask settings are messed up or that you are running some restricting
cage like SE Linux that prevents normal operation in this case.
