When it happened to me, it was because I needed to set the umask. The
user writing (which wouldn't change if svn was the user) was
commiting a new revision which didn't have proper permissions for
another user to access it.

I've also used sticky bit in directory permissions. The only time this
should be a problem though, is if some are accessing it with file://
which bypasses the svn server.

I've used a complex `find` command to search for files that either
have unexpected permission bits, or have a username that is not
"svn".
