LDAP authentication broke after SVN upgrade 1.1.1 to 1.2

Thanks for reading. I really enjoy using SVN and you developers are doing
great work. I just have a problem with LDAP authentication since upgrading
to your latest and greatest SVN 1.2, and hope you have seen the problem
before and can help me out.

I had an Apache 2.0.52 running under SVN 1.1.1, and my apache configuration
was using LDAP authentication so that anyone to access the repository had to
authenticate to the LDAP. It worked very nicely. When upgrading to SVN 1.2,
SVN warned me to upgrade to Apache 2.0.54, which I did. Then I installed SVN
1.2. Now every time I try to access the repository I get the authentication
box, but when I fill in my credentials and click OK, Apache crashes on the
server, and the client gets nothing. Nothing else has changed but the Apache
and SVN versions. Can you help?

Here is my relevant Apache configuration:

LoadModule ldap_module modules/util_ldap.so
LoadModule auth_ldap_module modules/mod_auth_ldap.so
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

# Of the two authentication modes below, the BYU LDAP is the

# their own Route Y Net ID and password.
# Sometimes the BYU LDAP is down, and we must redirect
