Authentication via WebDav

I'm trying to use Tortoise for the first time and having trouble with authentication. Sequence of events is this:

I open the Tortoise repository browser. In response to the request to specify the repository, I say:

After ignoring the complaint about an unknown certificate provider, this seems fine, and I can see the directory structure in the repository (worrying, since I haven't given a password yet).

I now try to create a directory. The system asks me for a username and password. I give the correct username and password. However, this is not accepted. The dialog simply repeats until I eventually give up and cancel out of it.

This set up is fine - if I go my Mac (which I use for PHP development) and type:
svn mkdir -m"stuff" https://svn.mydomain/svn/repository/somedirectory
everything is fine.

Relevant lines from my Apache configuration:
<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /var/svn
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "mydomain subversion repository"
      AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
      Require valid-user
# Require SSL connection for password protection.

So two questions:

(1) How did TortoiseSVN read my repository, apparently without a password?

(2) How can I get the create directory to work? Why is it kicking me out?

Yours in confusion...
