svnserve hangs during password check

From: <y.karal_at_eos-it-services.com>

Hi,

since a couple of days I have a Problem with svnserve:

If I activate password-checking in svnserve.conf ("anon-access = none,
auth-access = write")
and call "svn log svn://svn-server:PORT" the svnserve process lets the
client
ask for the password and then hangs (-> lets the client / and me wait more
than 24 hours)!

If I set "anon-access = read" then
"svn log svn://svn-server:PORT" works fine,
but checkin is still not working!

If I set "anon-access = write" then read and write access works fine,
exept, that I get "(no-author)" in my logs for every checkin!
For now I do a "svn propset --revprop -r <Revision-Number>
svn://svn-server:PORT" after each checkin,
but that's not a solution!

And now the funny parts:
1. I did NOT change anything on the server.
2. The system worked fine for five months (until last Friday) with
("anon-access = read, auth-access = write").
3. I am not able to create a new repository with svnadmin create ...
4. but svnadmin dump works fine, so I have a lot of backups, but I cannot
use them :-|

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

  Yildirim

Here my Configuration:

---- svnserve.conf start----
### This file controls the configuration of the svnserve daemon, if you
### use it to allow access to this repository. (If you only allow
### access through http: and/or file: URLs, then this file is
### irrelevant.)

### Visit http://subversion.tigris.org/ for more information.

[general]
### These options control access to the repository for unauthenticated
### and authenticated users. Valid values are "write", "read",
### and "none". The sample settings below are the defaults.
anon-access = read
auth-access = write
### The password-db option controls the location of the password
### database file. Unless you specify a path starting with a /,
### the file's location is relative to the conf directory.
### The format of the password database is similar to this file.
### It contains one section labelled [users]. The name and
### password for each user follow, one account per line. The
### format is
### USERNAME = PASSWORD
### Please note that both the user name and password are case
### sensitive. There is no default for the password file.
password-db = passwd
### This option specifies the authentication realm of the repository.
### If two repositories have the same authentication realm, they should
### have the same password database, and vice versa. The default realm
### is repository's uuid.
realm = My Realm
