Ah,.. yeah :) Lots of thanks. That works...
I just didn't know that directive because it seems that you can find it
only in the documentation for 2.1,.. but it works with Apache 2.0 too :-)

Uhmm btw: I can remove the "Require valid-user" in the <Location> block
of SVN now, can't I? And it's still __required__ for the User to
authenticate with his SSL Client Certificate?

Thanks and best wishes,
