Can't commit via svnserve - "authorization failed"

I seem to be having some difficulty getting a remote repository set up with svn.

Locally, I can create the repository, check out, and commit just fine.
However, remote users accessing the thing via svnserve can only check
out. On a commit operation, they get:

  svn: Commit failed (details follow):
  svn: Authorization failed

I've checked permissions on the repository. It's in /var/svn/repos/,
and the user svn has permissions and ownership of everything from svn

I've also checked the svnserve.conf file for this repository, and I have:

  anon-access = read
  auth-access = write
  realm = Friends - Blast

I've also checked to make sure that svnserve is running as the user svn:

> ps aux | grep ^svn
  svn 32727 0.0 0.0 7548 804 ? Ss 12:19 0:00 svnserve -d

So, yes, it appears to be.

What else might I be overlooking?
