Problems Using mod_authz_ldap With mod_authz_svn

I am working on a client configuration and need to toss something out
here in case anyone else has had to do it before. The client needs to
have authentication done via LDAP. He needs a "single sign on" between
his subversion repositories, webdav, applications, etc. He also
requires fine grained permissions on his repositories that would
require the use of mod_authz_svn.

I seem to be running into problems when using the two in conjunction.
If I specify a AuthzSVNAccessFile and use an htpasswd generated
AuthUserFile, all is fine. If is use mod_authz_ldap to authenticate,
but turn off the fine grained permissions by commenting out the
AuthzSVNAccessFile, all is fine. When I add the access file back in, I
can no longer authenticate. Here is the excerpt from my config:

     <Location /svn>
         DAV svn
         SVNParentPath /opt/svn/repositories

         AuthzLDAPEngine on
         AuthzLDAPUserBase ou=People,dc=mersoft,dc=net
         AuthzLDAPUserKey uid
         AuthzLDAPUserScope base

         # AuthzSVNAccessFile /opt/svn/repositories/svn-access-file

         AuthType basic
         AuthName "Subversion"
         require valid-user

Has anyone had to deal with this configuration combination before? Is
it possible to use them in conjunction?
