The problem was that Apache was setting my umask to 113! With that:

+ ls -ldF ./objects/incoming-w7agmb/pack objects/incoming-w7agmb
ls: cannot access ./objects/incoming-w7agmb/pack: Permission denied
drw---S--- 2 apache cvs 4096 Dec  3 21:14 objects/incoming-w7agmb/
error: remote unpack failed: unable to create temporary object directory

With 002 it succeeds:

+ ls -ldF ./objects/incoming-IbGS6h/pack objects/incoming-IbGS6h
drwx--S--- 3 apache cvs 4096 Dec  3 21:19 objects/incoming-IbGS6h/
drwxrwsr-x 2 apache cvs 4096 Dec  3 21:19 ./objects/incoming-IbGS6h/pack/

So I fixed my umask and got it working, but maybe a test for "your umask is dumb" is worthwhile.

Thanks for your help!
