Error updating projects without full access rights

With Subversion 1.5 I get errors when I try to update projects where
some source file was renamed or moved. My user doesn't have full read
access to the repository, I can access only specific projects, whenever
svn encounters a moved file it attempts to request OPTIONS the
repository root failing with 403 Forbidden because I don't have access
to it.

The repository is structured like this:


I have read/write access to plugin1 but not to the parent directories.
Whenever a file is renamed I get an OPTIONS error accessing

With svn 1.4 it was working well, however I can't say if it is an issue
on the client or server side because I was aware of problem only after
both were updated to svn 1.5. I can say that using svn from the command
line I can check-out the projects without problems, using svnkit (with
Subclipse in my case) I can't even check-out the projects with
refactorings, so maybe the issue is related to the client side.

Is there an option I can set to prevent the access to the repository
root when not needed ?
