Who did the original 'svnadmin create' command? Was it you or someone
else, as root? Or is there another process that manages that directory
and would reset permissions?

svnsync doesn't have any privileges you didn't have as the user when
the task runs, so perhaps you could explain how the repository was
created and who owns the *files* in the repository.
