That is what I thought. Thanks for confirming that.

Sorry, I was told to investigate the possibility of using smart card
certificates in place of username/password and haven't actually made
it to the point of compiling it myself; I just wanted to see if it was
an option if we are told that we must make that switch immediately.
I will be sure to submit the feature request; do I just send it to
the Subversion dev mailing list (sorry, I'm pretty new to all this).

Actually, I was connecting with the 1.5.5 release, not building my own.
There is something about our Apache configuration that isn't
quite right, but I'm not sure what it is.

Thanks again for the help,
