Problem With Basic HTTP Authentication

Hi there,

I'm new in subversion and having a problem just doing a basic http
authentication. I'm using subversion 1.4.0 with apache 2.0 with SSL. I've
read the manual how to setup a basic http authentication and followed it's
instructions. I've create my svn-auth-file using apache htpasswd utlity and
put this file in my apache/conf directory and then modified my httpd.conf by
adding the following directives:

<Location /starsvn>
 DAV svn
 SVNListParentPath on
 SVNParentPATH c:/starcom.svnroot/
 SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
 #AuthzSVNAccessFile bin/apachesvnauth
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "Starcom Repository"
 AuthUserFile svn-auth-file
 # For any operations other than these, require an authenticated user
  Require valid_user

With this configuration I can checkout the code, but when I check--in, it
will prompt me for my user name and password (which is what I want) but when
I tried to say ok, it just pops up the same window. It does not tell me if
the username and/or password is incorrect, it just keeps poping that
authentication window and will not allow me to check-in. If I commented the
directive "AuthUserFile..." I can checkin my code but without the
authentication window. I don't know what I'm doing wrong or what I'm not
doing. Can anyone please help me.
