impossible to commit

Hello everybody,

I am trying to commit a project, but always have a message of authorisation failure, though my login/password are good.
For information, I am under linux and use the command lines for subversion.
According to "svn --version", I use: svn, version 0.29.0 (r6976)
It indicates also:
The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' schema

So there is exactly what I do:
* first, a checkout:
[jey_at_home projet]svn co svn://url_of_project/branches
A branches/RoadMap.sxw
A branches/test.txt

It seems to work. Ok!

* then, I go inside the directory branches/ (cd branches/) and create a single personnal directory:
[jey@home branches]$ svn mkdir Jey
A Jey

It works and the directory is added to the project.

* And to check if the commit works (it is my first subversion use), I try to commit my modifications, id est only a new directory:
[jey@home branches]$ svn commit --username jey --password my_passwd --no-auth-cache --message "Creation of the Jey directory"
svn: Authorization failed
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Connection is read-only

Uh?!? What is the problem then? For precisions:
- I tried also with a single file, instead of a directory (which I take on my hard disk with a "cp ~/path/file ." and then do a "svn add file", and it seems to work, as it print a "A file" on screen.).

- I tried to specify only the url of the new directory/file in the commit command:
svn commit Jey/ --username jey --password my_passwd --no-auth-cache --message "Creation of the Jey directory"
or under the main directory of the subversion:
"svn commit branches/ --username jey --password my_passwd --no-auth-cache --message "Creation of the Jey directory"

- I tried to add my login/password at each of the command I did (in the checkout, the mkdir, or the add).

Or I tried multiple mixes of all that, and it never worked. Always the same failure.

Of course, don't just say this is because my login is only in read mode, not in write, because I saw it with the subversion administrator, and he checked it itself with my login. Moreover, the other people of the project can do a commit and they are of course with the same user-configuration as me.
So where else could be the raison of such an issue?
Thank you so much if you can help me (or not :-().
