If you checkout a fresh working copy over http, and then attempt to
commit, does the client prompt you for a password?

If not, something is wrong. That means apache isn't issuing a
challenge for some reason... maybe it can't find the AuthUserFile or
something.

If you do get prompted for a password, then we need a network trace of
the commit. Use ethereal or something to capture the http dialogue,
and post it here.
