Hi Sam

we observed a similar behaviour when entering svn ls -R

In our case the authentication token was stored in the
%APPDATA%\Subversion\auth\svn.simple directory instead of the
%APPDATA%\Subversion\auth\svn.ssl.server directory as for the other
requests. Our work around was to grant all users read access as
default and configure Apache with

<LimitExcept PROPFIND>
  Require valid-user
</LimitExcept>

Probably you have to change it to <LimitExcept LOCK> but check if
this is a behaviour you can accept.

I don't know if this is the intended
! behaviour or a bug.

Best
George
