Per Folder Permissing Issue

I noticed recently on an SVN server that the following occurred (simplified

On an apache server with integrated windows authentication (
http://myserver/svn/dev/), I have the following permissions:

Thomas = r

Thomas =

Thomas = r

Thomas =

Then, here is the access I have:

http://myserver/svn/dev/ - Forbidden
 http://myserver/svn/dev/somecode/ - Accessible
http://myserver/svn/dev/someothercode/ - Forbidden

However, when I insert a "." into the right place in the URL, the following

 http://myserver/svn/dev./ - Accessible
 http://myserver/svn/dev./somecode/ - Accessible
http://myserver/svn/dev./someothercode/ - Accessible

The problem appears to be that when that "." is inserted into the URL, then
the permissions for [/] are used for the entire repository rather than just
the actual folder permissioning. I have verified by removing the permission
for [/], in which case, the right folders are forbidden.

Is this a bug? This issue is both in 1.4.2 and 1.5.
