I'd go for this option...

So this is only an issue in the dev environment right?  If Run and hide
isn't an option, the cron to reset is probably the best bet - I've seen this
done.  Or maybe try your luck at lucky 777's - Or maybe have everyone use
the same user?  Wee...

This isn't really a svn problem as I understand it, since this is about just
having multiple people work in the same directory and stepping on each
other's toes - let's hope someone doesn't put in 5 hours of dev on a file,
then have someone else overwrite :) 

But since you already have everything in subversion, why not setup multiple
dev sandboxes?  It should only be a matter of a couple vhosts and CNAMES and
the 1 hour that takes could prevent losing 5 hours of dev.
