So what happened here:
- repository server went down
- you try to access the repository
- before you can access it, you have to authenticate
- authentication works, because the domain server still works
- sspi module passes the auth info to the mod_dav_svn module
- mod_dav_svn isn't running (correctly), so sspi thinks authentication
   wasn't accepted by mod_dav_svn
- You're asked to authenticate again

I'd say it's Apache stuff. But I don't know enough to be really helpful
