Ok, this is quite embarrassing. I misread the hints in svnserve.conf regarding the "password-db" option. I thought it would use the passwd of the requested repository by default if commented out. ;) After uncommenting it, everything is working like expected.

Thanks to Will for opening my eyes! :)

Can you authenticate from the Linux machine using svn:// type urls?
if you can then the server is configured correctly and you've got a Windows problem...
If not, then the server is misconfigured somehow. You sure you uncommented the password-db = passwd line in svnserve.conf ? :)
