Security and/or corruption issues with single repository and multiple projects?

I am trying to determine if I should go with a single repository for my projects, or multiple repositories. I have integrated subversion FSFS repository and apache and mod_dav and auth_ldap.
My first concern is that even though I can set permissions restricting users to a particular project, how well has subversion FSFS and mod_dav been tested to assure the admin that a user of a project cannot somehow affect another project within the same repository?
Has anyone ever heard of, or experienced a situation where a user of one project was able to corrupt or hack into another project within the same repository?
