svn: PUT 403 Forbidden error

I have a new repository on a new server that uses CentOS and has CPanel for
management. Getting SVN to work with CPanel was a pain but now it works ok,
I can create repositories, I can checkout and I can see the repositories in
browser. I can even commit if I try from command line, on the server, as
root. The problem is that on my local working copy I get the following error
when I try to commit.

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
> svn: PUT of
> '/svn/testrepo/!svn/wrk/a9b6652a-2f01-0010-83aa-f9ff957523f6/index.php': 403
> Forbidden

The repository is owned by the apache user and it has the right permissions.
I've googled it for a while now and from what I can tell there is some
Allow/Deny directive in the CPanel generated apache config that generates
the 403 error.

The repositories are at
*/home/repos/ *
And I access them by:

So /home/repos/testrepo should match http://site.com/svn/stestrepo
