apache2, ubuntu610 dav_svn cant read the password file..

I'm trying to set up subversion on ubuntu 6.10,
using apache2, and dav_svn.
 
If I disable basic authentication, I can remotely read the repository (can't
seem to check in though, no write access?).
 
If I enable basic authentication, and try to check in something,
then I get authentication failures, and the apache log
shows this:
 
client error blabla ... Could not open password file:
/etc/apache2/dav_syn.passwd
 
If I su from root to www-data, I can read that password file (as user
www-data) no problem.
 
Aside from checking again that I have the right files in the right places
with the right names, I'm stumped!
I see some hints about debian enabling virtual servers on
blog.andrewbeacockcom/2005/08/configuring-subversion-svn-on-linux.html
 
but I tried those hints and it didn't fix things..
 
Did lots of googling, saw others with similar problems but haven't found a
fix yet..
Help!
