AuthzSVN behavior different between browser and svn client

I am trying to get the AuthzSVN working and am having trouble. Given the
directives below, I should not be prompted for a password according to
the RedBook because my authorizations file has the anonymous entry in
it. Using the svn client I am asked to accept the ssl certificate and
then correctly granted entry. Using a browser howerver and going to
location /svn I am prompted for a password. Is this a problem with the

I want to implement mixed repo access and this is just stage 1.

Also, the SSLRequireSSL does not seem to work here. I can use standard
http with no problems for both the svn client and browser based access.
I don't want plain text passwords and digest is still experimental so I
was hoping that SSL would work. Has anyone got a similar setup to work?

(FC2 and subversion 1.1.1)
