FW: svnserve not authenticating users...

From: Melikian, Chris <Chris.Melikian_at_uk.fid-intl.com>

Can anyone help with this? We have a continuous build environment and need
to identify the user who has checked in code that has broken the build. We
moved the repository from a linux box in which the authentication worked
with the same config.

Is anyone using the Solaris 8 1.2.3 binaries successfully via svnserve with
authentication?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Chris.
