That was the hint, thank you. I noticed today the commit does work on
our new SVN server but does not work on the old one. The new one uses
a newer version of mod_auth_sspi which supports converting the user
name to lower case.

The reason why it sometimes works and sometimes not is that windows is
inconsistent about the user name that is passed to the NTLM module.
WIndows mixes DOMAIN\User, domain\user, domain\User, DOMAIN\user and
so on. When you configure subversion to accept "user" and windows
passes "User", then you get the access denied. Subversion cares about
the case, windows does not.

By the way, I have a mod_auth_sspi 1.0.3 that supports a
SSPIUsernameCase [upper|lower] directive. You can download it here:

This could also be added to the Manual and FAQ.
