Username with spaces?

Hi,

i have created a repository which i want to access (authenticated) through
svnserve and have configured the repository's config files like this:

svnserve.conf
-------------
[general]
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
realm = My Repository

passwd:
-------------
[users]
Mark = xyz

This configuration works fine. But now i would like to import my good old
SourceSafe repository where the user is not called Mark, but Mark Twain
(authentication with exactly that name is needed to recreate the file
history). Now passwd looks like this:

[users]
Mark Twain = xyz

Now i try
   svn list "svn://Mark Twain_at_localhost/repository"
and the authentication dialog starts like this
   Password for 'Mark Twain':

After typing the password, i have to type the Username again, then the
password and then both again. Afterwards, the following error occurs:
   svn: Authentication error from server: Malformed client response in
authentication

Did i miss something? Has anyone had the same problem or a solution at hand?

Thanks for your Time.

Cheers,
Chris
