TSVN 1.6.10 uses neon 0.29.3, TSVN 1.6.11 uses neon 0.29.4 and TSVN
1.6.12 uses neon 0.29.5.

I recommend you ask either on the neon mailing list for help, or get
help from the VisualSVN guys: one of them sent a patch to neon about the
SSPI authentication, so they have a test environment and know the code.
