authz access file problem

Hi,

I've been trying to follow the instructions at
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook-1.0/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-
sect-4.4.2> on setting up more sophisticated, directory-based access
control. I have an Apache .conf file that looks like this:

###
<Location /svn>
         DAV svn

         SVNParentPath /svn
</Location>

<Location /svn/alurio>
         AuthType Basic
         AuthName "Alurio SVN Team Access"
         AuthUserFile /svn/alurio/passwd

         AuthzSVNAccessFile /svn/alurio/access

         Satisfy Any
         Require valid-user
</Location>
###

/svn/alurio/passwd contains several `htpasswd`-created accounts. It
works correctly when used without Authz.

For testing reasons, /svn/alurio/access currently simply looks like
this:

###
[/]
* = rw
###

The repository is owned by Apache ('www-data') and has modes 700. The
files 'access' and 'passwd' are owned by 'root' and have modes 644.

With Authz off, this works fine (obviously, 'access' will be ignored).
With it enabled, however, checkouts from remote hosts through HTTP
fail: on the client-side (`svn update`), I get:

###
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/alurio'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/alurio': 500 Internal Server Error
(http://www.alurio.org)
###

And on the Apache log side, I get:

###
==> /var/log/apache2/access.log <==
217.225.143.73 - - [07/Nov/2004:08:48:38 +0000] "PROPFIND /svn/alurio
HTTP/1.1" 500 657 "-" "SVN/1.1.1 (r11581) neon/0.24.7"

==> /var/log/apache2/error.log <==
[Sun Nov 07 08:48:38 2004] [error] [client 217.225.143.73] The URI does
not contain the name of a repository. [403, #190001]
###

Any pointers? :-)
