It's been a while since I last used svnserve. Could your
user checking in be overriding some permissions in the
repos; thus locking up any further checking in?

You didn't mention whether or not after checking in with his account,
could anyone else check out from the repos. Could be
irrelevant to your problem. At this moment, the word
'permissions' is the only thing I can think of.
