I can't give you a full answer, but I can say that I fell foul of this
one when I was trying to set Subversion up as a service under Windows.
Basically it needs to be able to execute svn and to read from and write
to the repository.

There may be other things, but they were the ones I found. Once I'd
done that it worked OK.
