AuthZ file not as expected

I have set up a repository for many projects, and want to restrict both read and write access for each project to a group of people. Easy enough I would belive, but I end up with the users not being able to create tags or branches! They get an error :

    RA layer request failed
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to PROPFIND request for '/repos/java'

Now if I give the user (rather the group the user belong to) read access to the repository root, everything works, but this is not what we want since we want to restrict read access to all the other projects! This seems like weird behaviour to me, any explanation?

Here is an abstract of our svn_access_file :

csvn = rw
@admin = rw

admin = userx
fts_core = usery

@fts_core = r # This was needed to be able to tag within fts_core

@fts_core = rw
