Are you using 1.8.0 or 1.8.1? Some auth problems were fixed in 1.8.1,
though there may be more to come. Almost certainly this comes from a
change in subversion, which now uses serf in place of neon as the http
library. (serf was optional but not the default in 1.7, but in 1.8 it
is the only choice).
