Here's your problem. Read the commented text carefully: you must
specify a 'passwd-db' variable that points to a *separate* file that
contains the [users] section.

(I'm glad we fixed this default svnserve.conf wording in svn 1.1;
you're like the 300th person to blindly uncomment "[users]" in
svnserve.conf. :-( )
