"svn: Can't get password"

Hi there,

I have installed subversion 1.2.1 on a windows server and created a
repository. The repository can be accessed from other windows machines
using the TortoiseSVN client and checkin/checkout and commit works fine.
To throw a spanner in the works I also need to be able to access the
repository from macs running OSX 10.3 or higher.

Accessing the repository from a mac for a checkout and update works
fine, passwords are requested and accepted, but any commit fails with
the error:

"svn: Can't get password"

This happens on both scplugin and svnX so I'm assuming it's at the svn
client level. I have searched a lot of sources for info but I have not
been able to find anything relevant so far.

**** Details ****

Windows 2000 server sp4
Subversion 1.2.1 server from the compiled binaries at tigris.org
Default install using Berkley DB
Run as service using SVNservice service wrapper for windows
Clients that work
Windows 2000 sp4 and XP sp2
TortoiseSVN 1.2.1
Accessing repository via svn://servername
Client that fails
Mac OSX 10.3.9 (firewall disabled for testing)
Subversion client 1.2.1 from Metissian.com
scplugin v269
Accessing repository via svn://servername

All machines are on a local network.

Does anyone have an suggestions?
