It did, but the general client user will not have access to the server

The log, as noted in my original message, was
[Wed Feb 09 10:55:25 2005] [crit] [client] configuration error: couldn't perform authentication. AuthType not set!: /svn/!svn/act/6a77a29b-b2ef-\

Looking at the configuration snippet that was causing this, I see that
the AuthType statements were commented out.
