Is the URL you checked out from properly capitalized? Apache (which is
bundled in VisualSVN Server) is case-sensitive, as is Subversion's
path-based authorization, but the underlying OS is not. So some
actions pass through unscathed, and others bomb.

In my case, we have anonymous read access, but authorization required
for commits. I have a repository in E:\Repos\Code and SVNParentPath on
the server points at E:\Repos (my <Location> block puts my
repositories under /Repos).

Users can check out from http://server/Repos/code but get 403
Forbidden when attempting to commit. If checked out from
http://server/Repos/Code, commits are fine.
