I figured it out... When I reinstalled 1.5.4 (over 1.5.2) the installer
overwrote the registry entries at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Carnegie
Mellon\Project Cyrus\SASL Library (ConfFile and SearchPath). So I mistakenly
changed *both* of them to my repository's conf folder (where I've got my
SASL config file) instead of just ConfFile! I reinstalled 1.5.4 again and
just changed the ConfFile entry this time... and now my repository does
correctly SASL-authenticate using 1.5.4 :)
Regarding Subversion vs VSS... From what I've seen of Subversion, it has
some big advantages over VSS; in fact, I can't think of a single reason to
stay with VSS. I've even persuaded my company of the benefits of moving to
Subversion, so we'll be migrating our projects within a couple of months
once we're comfortable with it.
