svnserve authx problems...

I just upgraded my subversion server from 1.2 to 1.3.2 (FreeBSD) and
am having some problems setting up the new authz-db stuff.

I am using svnserve, not apache.

My svnserve.conf is:

anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
realm = MyProject
authz-db = authfile

My authfile is

tankko = rw

richp = rw

richp = rw

I want the user richp to only have access to the Data and Source
directories, but nothing else in /trunk, /release, /tags, or the other
directoies in /trunk.

When he tries to do an update he gets:

Error: Not authorized to open root of edit operation

He can't get any access at all unless I add him to the [/] block as rw.

I've tried giving him access to [/], but then blocking access to
[/trunk], then granting to [/trunk/Data], but nothing works.

What am I doing wrong? Everything works fine if I remove the authz-db
= authfile line as well, so svnserve is function correctly without
