svnserve authz: requires root read access

Hi. I've been trying out the new authorization functionality for svnserve.
 My intention was to give a particular user read/write access to a single
 directory only, e.g.:
 foo = rw
 bar = rw
 User bar can now read only from /open and no other directory.
 Unfortunately any write to /open returns with an "Access denied".
 With root read access enabled for bar, writes now succeed, e.g.:
  foo = rw
 bar = r
  bar = rw
 bar =
 Is this intended or a bug? I presume a call to open_root() is the
 culprit. Whether bug or feature, the work-around of enabling
 root read access and then disabling access to each other top-
 level, is quite a pain.
