The svnserve configuration file does not have such a section. What it does
have is an example of what a separate users file should look like. IE, you
put the path to the password file in svnserve.conf, and put the actual user
information in that file.

In svnserve.conf
...
[general]
password-db=password.txt
...

Then in password.txt in the same directory:
[users]
joe=j8976kh98
foo=bar
user=password

You're not the first to be confused by this ;-) Maybe one should look at the
wording in svnserve.conf?

Ankh will only prompt if challenged by the server, as it should.
