Problems with svnserve authentication

I have a test repository called test in /home/subversion/test, and have
created a user named "test" to run svnserve under.

So, I have the following in /home/subversion/test/conf/svnserve.conf:

    anon-access = none
    auth-access = none

All files under /home/subversion are UID/GID test, since I found out the
hard way that subversion doesn't play well with just group read/write

Launching svnserve as follows:

    sudo -u test svnserve -d -r /var/svn

runs it as the restricted user.

Alas, I can still check out files anonymously. What's going wrong here?

Todd's "Customer Disservice Hall of Shame" currently contains:
    - Charter Communications: Mislead their customers about service
      levels, block normal Internet connectivity, and exhibit excessive
    - AT&T: Honoring the "checks" they send out to entice you to switch
      long-distance providers is apparently optional.
    - eFax: Receive (not send) 20 pages of *unsolicited* faxes, and lose
      your account.
