This has nothing to do with the server I don't think.  The server is fine 
- it's running as an svn server remotely.  I'm using svnserve, not svn+ssh 
or file://, so checking things in works fine.  The permissions error I'm 
getting is on the LOCAL checkout.

I thought hooks only do thing on the server?  This problem exists with an 
svn checkout, not an svn repository.
