Checkout ignores restricted paths

I'm trying to set up a SVN server using Apache and configure
per-directory access control with mod_authz_svn. The server side looks
fine, but when I checkout a certain path, restricted directories below
it are skipped.

The mod_authz_svn access file looks like this:

* = r

* =
blade = rw

If I checkout /trunk, then /trunk/site is simply skipped, even if I use
--username. If I checkout /trunk/site, the svn client asks for
authentication credentials and works fine.

If I change the access file and leave /trunk restricted (i.e. not
anonymously readable), everything works fine, because checking
out /trunk asks for username/password immediately.

I guess that if the checkout starts as anonymous user, it will never ask
for authentication credentials when restricted paths are encountered.

Is there any way I could let /trunk anonymously readable and /trunk/site
restricted and still be able to check the whole /trunk
(including /trunk/site) when correctly presenting the username and

If you reply, please cc to my private address - I'm not subscribed to

Many thanks,
