Client Certificate Authentication/Authorization?

From: <Steve.Craft_at_sungard.com>

Server is Win32, Svn + Apache. Apache uses client-certificate-only for auth
(http://www.modssl.org/docs/2.8/ssl_howto.html#auth-particular), so
everyone can view parts of the system but only those with internal
CA-issued client certs can access my /svn structure.

I can browse https://theserver/svn/myrepos, get prompted for the client
cert, select it, and browse.

Using Tortoise, if I use the Repo Browser on the same URI:


Prompt window comes up -

     "Error validating server certificate...."

But that does not happen when using IE or Firefox (because I already
installed the cert).

Where does Tortoise keep it's list of trusted Cas?

I choose to accept the prompt and accept the server certificate


The browser shows the tree hierarchy down to the specified path, but if I
expand another directory to go another level deeper, I see -

      "Error *PROPFIND request failed on '/svn......'"

The Apache log says -

[Thu May 18 13:36:47 2006] [error] Re-negotiation handshake failed: Not
accepted by client!?

I reckon there is something missing from my Tortoise configuration, but
what is it?
