AuthzSVNAccessFile: character not allowed

Hi all,

after upgrading from subversion 1.3.2 to 1.4.0 on my gentoo box, my
AuthzSVNAccessFile stopped working.

When accessing the repository through dav in apache 2.0.58 over ssl, I
get a 403 (forbidden) and this error message in my apache log:
[Sat Sep 16 22:40:48 2006] [error] [client] Failed to load
the AuthzSVNAccessFile: The character 'm' in rule 'ssl-authority-files'
is not allowed in authz rules
[Sat Sep 16 22:40:48 2006] [error] [client] Access denied:
'foo' GET repos:/

My access file looks like this:
ssl-trust-default-ca = true
ssl-authority-files = /var/svn/conf/cacert3.pem

As soon as I remove the two ssl-* lines, the installation works fine
again. Intrestingly enough the error message always declares the last
character on the last configuration line of the global section as
invalid (that is 'e' when I remove the ssl-authority-files line for

Did I miss anything in the upgrade process? Did the configuration change?
