Problem with special characters in password with ntlm auth

From: Yves Glodt <y.glodt_at_sitasoftware.lu>

I have set up an Subversion server using the following software:

- Apache 2.0.55
- SVN 1.3.0
- mod_auth_sspi 1.0.4-rc
- Openssl 0.9.8a
- TortoiseSVN 1.3.2, Build 5840 - 32 Bit

I connect to it from Tortoisesvn via https, and it works well, except
one thing....
It seems if a user has a special character in his password, he is always
rejected with the following error (from apache errorlog):

(OS 1326)Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. : user
MYDOMAIN\\yves: authentication failure for "/".

Special character is e.g. any of the following: é $ ' !

What makes me post here is the fact that I can login with my
user/password through firefox, it only seems to fail with Tortoisesvn...

Someone has an idea where this could come from? Is there another way to
debug this?
