Hi,

in a way, I did (but I use my own ldap authentication module). Recently I
had the same problem - authentication via browser works, via cmdline not.
The problem was a password longer than 8 chars. The getpass() routine on
Solaris (the system where the problem occured) truncates the given password
after 8 chars. Checkout from a linux system did work, as did updating an
already checked out repository.

Could this be your problem?

Greetings, Swen
