If everyone can check out certain folders but not others (i.e., the
'anonymous' user has read access), then Subversion does not ask for
authentication, since the server doesn't need it.

You have to either prevent read access for *all* folders for the
anonymous user, or give the anonymous user read access to all folders.

Or you can check out a folder the anonymous user doesn't have read
access to - then the server will ask for authentication.
