Subversion using apache and ldap

Hello all,

I have finally been able to get subversion working over apache. I have now
jumped into the task of adding authentication of this access using an
openldap directory that is already used for our domain authentication. The
problem is I can not seem to get it to work. I believe that I have the ldap
url correct but I can still not authenticate anyone. The weird problem is
that I don't get an error in the apache error log. With previous attempts at
ldap urls I would get an error such as object not found or something
similar, but now the error log is clean. All I get now is a 401 showing in
the access log, which is what I get when using a browser or a client. I just
thought that some sort of error would show in the error log explaining why I
was getting this 401. Is it possible that it is not connecting to ldap or it
can not correctly check the password? I am fairly new to ldap as well, so
maybe I did something there in my setup that is not allowing the

I will include my vhost config, the auth section will eventually go into the
<LimitExcept>, but for now I am just testing.

additional info to diagnose the problem, please tell me.
