svnserve authentication

Hello

I'm having a problem with svnserve on Windows. I configured svnserve as a service to listen to 4444 port. I added a repository (using svnadmin) at c:\svn\repository\nawigus. The configuration files in ...nawigus\conf are as follows
svnserve.conf:
[general]
anon-access = write
auth-access = write
password-db = /svn/repository/nawigus/conf/passwd
authz-db = /svn/repository/nawigus/conf/authz
realm = nawigus

authz:
[groups]
authors = wilku
[nawigus:/]
@authors = rw
* = rw

passwd:
[users]
wilku = 123456

Now, when I try to do: svn ls svn://localhost:4444/svn/repository/nawigus
I get svn: Authorization/Authentication failure (this is a translation as I've got polish version).
I don't even have a chance to give my credentials. Does svn store previously given wrong password and tries to authenticate with it? If so, how can I retype my username and password? It all works well with file:// as it doesn't need any authentication.
As you see I gave all access to all people - and still nothing. What am I missing?

Cheers
