"Error 401: Unauthorized means; the client does not have the required
privileges to access the site."

then it may be an issue with SSPI authentication. You get authenticated
as e.g. the 'guest' user, but of course that user doesn't have access to
the repository. Try disabling the 'guest' user account on the server. Or
use TSVN 1.3.x which has SSPI disabled. Or use the *next* nightly build
(should be up in about 5 hours) and edit the Subversion config file (I
think the 'servers' file) to disable SSPI for that url. (you might have
to delete the existing config files first so they get recreated with the
help text about these new options).
