Subversion doesn't really know about the authentication, it uses other
modules to do that job. For SSPI authentication, it's the neon library
that does the job.
But neon does the authentication according to the data it gets from the
server. And simply activating SSPIPerRequestAuth should not change the
authentication, at least not as far as I know.
So I would suspect that this is a problem of the mod_auth_sspi module.
