Subversion must be using my cached credentials since this works:

svn co http://svn/test/trunk/secret
A secret/test.txt
Checked out revision 5.

So the question becomes, why does subversion skip over /trunk/secret
when I issue:

svn co http://svn/test/trunk
A trunk/test.txt
Checked out revision 5.

I've even tried explicitly specifying the username

svn --username dnewman co $T/trunk
A trunk/test.txt
Checked out revision 5.
