I had the same troubles on our installation and could make it work again when I enabled my (custom) setting 'SSPILowerUserName' - but don't ask me *why* this seems to work!

When I set up our Subversion/Trac server I patched mod_auth_sspi to provide an option to always lowercase the username but forgot to enable it for the Subversion part - only for Trac. After trying a nightly build (built against Subversion 1.3 I've come across this issue.

I could provide you this patched mod_auth_sspi or you maybe want to try this 'unified mod_auth_sspi' referred at http://www.subversionary.org/sspidomainauth#comment-14

My config:

        # Subversion
        <Location /svn>
          DAV svn
          SVNParentPath D:/data/svn/repos
          #SVNAutoversioning on
          AuthType SSPI
          AuthName "Subversion Repository Authentication"
          Require valid-user
          AuthzSVNAccessFile conf/svnaccess.conf
          SSPIAuth On
          SSPIAuthoritative On
          SSPIDomain MI
          SSPIOfferBasic On
          #SSPIBasicPreferred On
          SSPIOmitDomain On
          SSPILowerUserName On
