Such strange behaviour is often due to the client browser that gets
confused by changing configurations on the server side. Does purging the
auth cache and restarting the browser (to purge any session cache), or
accessing the repository from a "clean" browser solve your anonymous
problems? That would be my best bet, I've had both firefox and IE behave
very strangely when I was configuring access control for my site, due to
client confusion.
