Access denied when using externals

On our subversion server we have two repos. One called Main, and one
called 3rdparty. 3rdparty is primary used for 3rdparty libraries, and is
therefor access via svn:externals.

Both of the repos use the same access file. (We are using the http://

If we either edit or create a file in the directory that is an external,
we get access denied. If we rather check out the 3rdparty in a seperate
directory, rather that accessing it thru svn:externals, commiting is
done without any errors.
So if the directory HelloWorldLib (which is in 3rdparty repo) is a sub
folder(using svn:externals) in HelloWorld (located in Main) we cant edit
or add new files to HelloWorldLib unless we checkout HelloWorldLib
elsewhere and do the changes there.

The error log in apache just throws out:
[Fri Dec 01 14:19:16 2006] [error] [client] Access
denied: 'EPSIS\\chs' MKACTIVITY 3rdparty:

Is this intended or a bug?
