See http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4368 for another
example. Trunk gives:

   svn: warning: W120190: Error running context: An error occurred during authentication

with 1.7/neon the error was:

  svn: E175002: Server sent unexpected return value (401 Authorization Required) in response to LOCK request for '/obj/repo/A/f'
