Problem with SVN + Apache + ActiveDirectory + user ids starting with $

we are using SVN 1.1.3, Apache 2.0.x on a Windows XP workstation. We
have installed an Apache module that allows basic authentication
against the Windows Domain (in our case Active Directory).

We are able to authenticate users to grant access to the SVN
repositories, but if we define a svn.auth file to define more granular
access rights for individual users or groups on certain repositories, we
can't access the repositories anymore (I think I followed the
instructions found in several SVN books [SVN in Action, Practical SVN, etc).

Since all our userids start with the dollar ($) sign (e.g. my userid is
$weiral), I guess that that might be a cause for our problem.

Is there a way to define groups and identify our userids in the svn.auth
file to grant access to those groups or users? Is there a way to escape
the $ sign (e.g. \$weiral or $$weiral)?

Many thanks in advance for your precious help.

Kind regards,

Alex Weirig
