How are you accessing your repository? I remembering having
a similar issue awhile back. Ended up the format file was
not with the correct permissions for the Apache user. For
some reasons, the ownership went back to root. Of course,
I also remembering running change-wc-format.py with root
so that had something to do with barfing up the permissions.
