format: Permission denied even when read permissions are set

I just created a new repository, and loaded it with some initial
files. However when I go to checkout from my repository I get the
following:

$ svn checkout svn+ssh://jlconlin@myserver.com/path/to/repos/Repo CP
Password:
svn: Can't open file '/path/to/repos/Repo/format': Permission denied

I can log via ssh to check on the permissions of format and this is
what they are:

$ ls -lh
total 9.5K
-rw-rw-r-- 1 jlconlin jlconlin 229 Mar 11 06:55 README.txt
drwxrwxr-x 2 jlconlin jlconlin 5 Mar 11 06:55 conf
drwxrwxr-x 2 jlconlin jlconlin 2 Mar 11 06:55 dav
drwxrwsr-x 5 jlconlin jlconlin 10 Mar 11 06:56 db
-rw-rw-r-- 1 jlconlin jlconlin 2 Mar 11 06:55 format
drwxrwxr-x 2 jlconlin jlconlin 11 Mar 11 06:55 hooks
drwxrwxr-x 2 jlconlin jlconlin 4 Mar 11 06:55 locks

It seems clear to me that I have both read and write permissions for
the 'format' file. When I log in, I can view the file and see that
the format says '5'.

Does anyone know what is going wrong here?

Thanks,
Jeremy
