You might have had a process updating the working copy which
ran with a restrictive umask.

Generally speaking, I don't think that using Subversion as a
distribution and deployment tool is such a good idea. While
it might work most of the time, the primary focus is on version
control. Deployment should be handled by running 'svn export' to
retrieve a given state of your project from Subversion, and then
use any mechanism you like (e.g. rsync) to put the exported files
and directories where they need to be.
