Re: Windows svn/tortoise clients with an Apache 2.0.54/AuthenNTLM/svn 1.2.1/Linux server

I have two ideas...

1) - What version of the mod_ntlm module are you running? There was a
bug in it at one time that was fixed (see
under changes for 2.09)

2) - If you really have that many users, have you considered using LDAP
instead? I'm no genius, but my perception is that the LDAP is a bit
more robust and mature and may handle the user functionality better.
