It's probably not relevant in your case, but I frequently have such
issue with a windows repository, and per-directories access rights.

The problem was due to the case-(in)sensitivity: as any read operation
was granted without authentication, some people was doing their checkout
using a bad case-format (eg: "http://svnhost/svn/projectX/trunk"
instead of "http://svnhost/svn/projectx/trunk").
no problem for the checkout, the wrong url was properly mapped to a path
on the server... but committing was not possible, as the url was then
checked in a case-sensitive way...
