I don't consider this change correct. Although the Subversion client
currently always uses external auth when it can, tunnel clients are
supposed to be able to authenticate via password.

It might be okay to make svnserve tolerate permissions errors reading
the pwdb file and just not offer password authentication, but that would
be a trade-off; harder to diagnose a genuine permissions problem, but
would make your setup work.
