password-db failure?

I'm trying to set up svnserve with a source repository, and, well, it isn't
working :) I've narrowed down the weirdness finally. Without a password-db,
it seems to work fine (though with no security so this obviously isn't a
very tenable solution). With a password-db, I get the error that my
respository doesn't exist. I can comment the line out and put it back and
duplicate this behavior as many times as I want, with an otherwise-empty
svnserve.conf (well, [general] before the password-db line.)

svnserve.conf:

----
[general]
password-db = ../../users
----
(or - same behavior)
----
[general]
password-db = /usr/local/svn/users
----
/usr/local/svn/users:
----
[users]
myusername = mypassword
----
With password-db commented out/removed, I get:
----
$ svn import mv svn://servername/mv --username myusername
Log message unchanged or not specified
a)bort, c)ontinue, e)dit
c
svn: Connection is read-only
----
With it not commented out, I get:
----
$ svn import mv svn://servername/mv --username myusername
Log message unchanged or not specified
a)bort, c)ontinue, e)dit
c
svn: 'mv' does not exist
----
Any suggestions? This is getting annoying. :P I'm starting the daemon
with -d -r /usr/local/svn, btw. Thanks,
-Ben
