Multiple authentication not working

I am setting up a new 1.4 Svn server. This time, I want to get both Windows
authentication and basic authentication running, following the instructions
. I am using the binary Subversion distribution, Apache 2.0.59 (no SSL yet)
and mod_auth_sspi 1.0.4 .

The instructions are very good, but I think they may be wrong in describing
the multiple authentication settings. There is also an explicit mistypo
where it says that both AuthAuthoritative and SSPIAuthoritative must be set
to Off, and then SSPIAuthoritative is On a few lines later in the example.

What happens is that - in visiting the page with Firefox (so not to be
automatically recognised as it would happen with IE) - the first
authentication request dialog I get is the basic authentication one; I
insert a correct username/password couple, then get a new authentication
request dialog, this time for the Windows authentication.

I am sure I am not far from the solution because - if I comment one or the
other set of settings - the remaining authentication works fine. Here is my
Apache Location directive:

<Location />
    DAV svn
    SVNListParentPath on
    SVNParentPath "c:/svn_NEW"
    AuthName "Subversion Authentication"

    # NT Domain authentication
    AuthType SSPI
    SSPIAuth On
    SSPIAuthoritative Off
    SSPIOfferBasic On

    # htpasswd authentication
    AuthType Basic
    AuthAuthoritative Off
    AuthUserFile "c:/svn_NEW/passwd"

    # path-based authorization
    AuthzSVNAccessFile "c:/svn_NEW/authz"
    Require valid-user

Any advice? Thank you in advance,
