Not that I know anything at all about mod_authz_svn, but I'd imagine
that "* = " is trumping inheritance. ie. it does inherit the fact that
managers have read/write access and everyone else has read-only access,
but then it overrides that to say that *everyone* (including managers)
have no access, and finally that kpfleming has read/write access.

It's what makes sense, anyway, otherwise you wouldn't have any way to
selectively disable inheritance (because sometimes it won't be the
desired behaviour).
