PROPFIND: request failed? authorization failed?

I'm using svn 0.37 with apache 2.0.48 on gentoo Linux with webdav and dav_svn.
I imported my repository from cvs to svn and I was able to work with it for
about a month.
Now I cannot access it anymore:

~> svn xxx http://foo.com/bar
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/bar'
svn: PROPFIND of '/bar': authorization failed (http://foo.com/bar)

no update, no checkout - nothing works.
The Operating System doesn't matter; it does not work from w2k, winxp and
it does not work from linux. We are all using the svn 0.37 command line client.

BUT: I can access my repository with my webbrowser on http://foo.com/bar
The authorization-dialog pops up, I enter my name+pass and can browse
through the repository.
AND: I can checkout the repository with rapid-svn (but no checkin, update
or else)
All my co-workers have the same problem.

That is strange, isn't it?
I didn't change anything to my server-config(I cannot remember to have
changed something).

That's in my apache-config:

<IfDefine SVN>
        <IfModule !mod_dav_svn.c>
                LoadModule dav_svn_module extramodules/mod_dav_svn.so
        <Location /bar>
                DAV svn
                SVNPath /home/subversion/bar
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "Subversion Repository"
                AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
                Require valid-user

/etc/svn-auth-file -> this file belongs to root:root with rw-r----- mask
but Apache (user and group) has read-permission on it via Access Control
Lists (ACL)
/home/subversion/bar -> this directory belongs to nobody:SW with rwxrwx---
mask; me and my co-workers are in the group "SW"
the subdirectories db, dav and locks -> the same as above; the files within
the directories don't have x-permission
Apache (user and group) has the same permissions on these dirs+files via ACL.

That worked the whole time until now. svnadmin recover did not help,
changing the permissions didn't help. What's the problem there?
