access file problem

Hi all,

I am having problem with access control to my repository. In my httpd.conf, I have:

<Location /MyRepos>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /home/svn/MyRepos
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion repository"
   AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
   Require valid-user
   AuthzSvnAccessFile /etc/svn-access-file

I have no entry for <Location /> or SVNParentPath. /home/svn is an account I created for the purpose of managing svn repositories.

At first for svn-access-file I have:

* = rw
jack = rw

So far, so good. I was able to check out files under MyRepos. But when I remove permission from [/MyRepos] with:

* = rw
jack =

I was still able to check out files from MyRepos. It appears that the first entry has overrode the second entry.

If I have the access file with

jack = rw

entry ONLY, I cannot check out at all! I know that password entry for jack has been properly set up, so that's not the problem. I have read Timo Falk's access rights thread, and if he has his set up working, I am probably missing something. This problem occures whether or not I restart Apache after changing svn-access-file (which is probably not necessary)
