Fine, thank you, Uli.

Ok, the term "starts an svnserve instance" surely suprises me:
I have to become more familiar with ssh tunneling.
Who directs the ssh tunnel in how to start svnserve?
Where is that behavior configured?
How can I apply the --root parameter to that start of svnserve?

Yes, Uli, that worked by accident: The user who created the repository
is so far
the only one and the same as the one the authorized key for ssh-login
belongs to.

A hint in svn-book may help to get a ssh or linux semi-profi like me on
the track.
However, many thanks, Uli, for your kind help so far.
