Did you see the last mail from someone else on the list? It was a
good catch; you're using Limit instead of LimitExcept.

In other words, you've got the reverse behavior you want. You're
requiring a password on read operations, but not write operations.
That's why a password was required to checkout (when it shouldn't be),
and when you committed, Apache never bothered to issue an auth
challenge at all.
