Thanks for your help... just realized I had dropped off the users list
some time ago...

All looks fine...

No difference.

Okay, I've asked the user to do this. Will check back with results,
probably after the weekend... What's very strange is that when I run svn
info from my workstation, I get a normal info listing on both http and
https. When I run it on the server, I get this, on both http and https:

svn: Failed to fetch lock information: 403 Forbidden (http://server.dev)

... svn ls -v works fine
