This is a failing in the authentication model, which Sander Striker (the
author of mod_authz_svn) have discussed in the past. Because the 'root'
checkout requires no authn, the server sends no challenge, and the
checkout procedes as anonymous for the entire checkout. I can't
remember if there's a workaround or bug filed on this, or if there's
even a plan or way to get the behavior you desire.

Sander, can you comment?
