Windows client authentication at plain Linux svn server

After reading the subversion book, FAQ and other docs I still have a
problem related with a particular way of authentication. This is the

- Subversion server is running as a daemon on Linux
- SVN clients (Subclipse and TortoiseSVN) are running on several Windows
- Linux and WIndows machines are running in a safe intranet, so there is
no need for ssh or apache

So I'd like to authenticate with Subclipse/TortoiseSVN at the plain
Subversion daemon. I configured all the appropriate files in a test
repository (authz/passwd/svnserve.conf). I have disabled anonymous
access and set authorized access to read/write.

What now happens both with Subclipse and TortoiseSVN is, that these
clients always respond with an "Authorization failed" message and
_dont_even_try_ to give the user the chance to authorize. I have checked
the client options both for Subclipse and TortoiseSVN, and both dont
offer any configuration options regarding this.

May anyone point me in the right direction, cause rigth now I dont have
the slightest idea how to force the clients to authorize with the
subversion server. Or is it not possible to authorize with windows
clients at a subversion standalone linux server running as daemon?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
