[..using Ethereal to analyze network traffic..]

Very good idea :). Nice tool, by the way. Analysing the network traffic
showed that there was a authentification problem (error 401). That is a
little bit confusing, because username/password are correctly supplied to
Eclipse beforehand. Furthermore, the problem occurred only when I tried to
checkout the whole development tree. If I tried a smaller portion of the
tree, the checkout worked (with enabled authentification). Since disabling
basic authentification, the whole tree can be checked out without any
problems. Anyone an idea how I can protect the directory AND make big
checkouts? I would rather see the directory protected...

The relevant apache configuration lines (currently commented out ;) looked
like this:

    SVNParentPath /home/svn

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName Admin
    AuthUserFile /home/svn/.htpasswd
    require valid-user

There are the following directories in the file system:


All project files can be found under /home/svn/XXX/trunk/XXX. So the
authentification defined in the apache configuration should work,
shouldn't it?
Oh, and there IS a .htpasswd-file in /home/svn and it is filled with data,
indeed ;). As stated before, smaller checkouts and basic authentification
worked before.
