No username and password check

Thanks to those who helped with the repository browser connectivity. It
appears to work now but perhaps a little too well. I am not prompted
for a username and password. Nor is an officemate whose name isn't even
in the password file. We both can browse the repository just fine. I
created a few files and they have no author (which makes sense since no
credentials are supplied). Again I am running Apache 2.0.63, Subversion
1.4.6-4 and TortoiseSVN 1.4.8-12137 on WinServer2003 SP1. I have set up
basic authentication with an encrypted password file. The entry in
Apache's httpd.conf looks like:


<Location /svn/>

DAV svn

SVNParentPath E:\subversion\repositories

AuthType Basic

AuthName "Subversion repositories"

AuthUserFile E:\subversion\server\httpd\conf\passwd

Require valid-user



Any simple adjustments to force credential entry? Thanks in advance.
