Strange authentication behavior

From: Klaus Fehlker <lythie_ng_at_gmx.net>

i tried to "svn ls" a repository URL which is read protected. Authentication
is done via LDAP.

Working on Windows with svn 1.2.0 (r14790) is fine, but when i want to use
an 1.1.1 Subversion client on HP-UX i can only authenticate by providing the
password in the commandline-switch.

When i leave out the password switch it asks me for the password but always
denies access. I tried it several times so it is no typo.
I tried the bash and /bin/sh but no difference.

Also "svn import" shows this strange behavior.

Is anything known about this bug?

Many thanks for any help,

My setup:
Subversion client 1.1.1 (r11581) and also 1.0.2 (r9423) on an HP-UX 11.11
Subversion server 1.1.4 (r13838)
Apache 2.0.53

What i did:

-bash-2.05b$ svn --version
svn, version 1.0.2 (r9423) (same on 1.1.1 (r11581))
