1.4.6 auto update in post-commit stopped working when we moved from rhel4->rhel5

We had post-commit automatically updating several folders on our
server everytime someone did a check-in. We moved to RHEL5 and are
now running Subversion 1.4.6. Everything appears normal, except our
auto-updates now fail with this in the post-commit.log:

Fri Apr 4 08:02:55 PDT 2008Authentication realm: <https://domain:

request failed on '/svn/repos/trunk/html/_css/img/popup'svn: PROPFIND
of '/svn/repos/trunk/html/_css/img/popup': authorization failed

The RPM's we installed:

This is the relevant part of our post-commit:
commit.logdate >> $LOG
sudo /usr/bin/svn update /home/virtual/domain2/var/www/html/temp/
popup 1>>$LOG 2>>$LOG

We are using sudoers, and this is my entry in /etc/sudoers:
apache ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/svn update /home/virtual/domain2/var/www/

If I run the post-commit command from the CLI like this:
sudo -u apache /usr/bin/svn update /home/virtual/domain2/var/www/html/

I get this:
svn: Can't open file '/root/.subversion/servers': Permission denied

That last bit I am not sure is relevant or if I am being trapped by
chcon settings, though I have tried the suggestions on this list for
that with no success. I just need the automated updates to work, not
the CLI version. In the back of my mind there is some little niggly
thing I have forgotten to change, but for the list of me I can't
think of it, and I can't find my notes.

Does anyone have any suggestions on this?
