broken AuthzSVNAccessFile in 1.3.0 ?

After installing svn 1.3.0 and upgrading Apache from 2.0.54 to 2.0.55
(on Windows Server 2003), there are some strange behavior in

Apache conf:
<Location /svn/>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath C:\Data\SVN
   SVNListParentPath on
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion repositories"
   AuthUserFile svn_passwd
   AuthzSVNAccessFile svn_access.conf
   Require valid-user

svn_access.conf: (relevant part of it)

admins = Liwoj
devs = Liwoj, peta, Miroslav, arthur, pavca

* = r
@admins = rw
@devs = rw

Problem description:
Before upgrade (svn 1.2.3.) everything worked like a charm.
After upgrade when someone from devs group try to commit anything to TVM
   repository, he gets this error message " Error: MKACTIVITY of
'/svn/tvm/!svn/act/7dff391b-9d6b-0d4c-a0a5-6cf978297dda': 403 Forbidden
Message in Apache error log is: "[Tue Jan 17 11:02:15 2006] [error]
[client] Access denied: 'peta' MKACTIVITY tvm: "
Removing trailing slash from [TVM:/] do not help.
Removing trailing slash from "<Location /svn/>" do not help either
(added for SVNListParentPath to work)
I (Liwoj) can commit without problems. When i change root privileges from
"* = r" to "* = rw", all @devs can commit normally.

Is that bug or by design ?
