Are you SURE that anonymous access is getting in? Subversion caches
your credentials, you know, the first time you supply them. Could it
be that the username "justin" and the password are cached in
~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple which is why you can get access when
you do not explicitly supply a username and password? Try deleting
the cached info from that directory and see if you then still have
access. I suspect you do not, meaning the server is correctly set up.
