i just got an email from the original author and he found the problem. the
problem is that the certificate contains german umlauts () and
subversion/neon obviously has problem handling such certificates! i have
created a new certificate for my subversion server which doesn't contain
umlauts and it indeed works now except for the fact that i can only
temporarily accept my certificate instead of permanantly.
