svn co ignores subfolders with restricted access

I seem to have a problem with my svn client.
Summary: "svn checkout" ignores subfolders with restricted access, even
when I provide proper authentication. It works fine for the root folder;
only subfolders give problems.

I've got a repository set up as follows:

* The root is accessible as anonymous:
(check out yourself; you should be able to see this)

* One of the subfolders is only accessible for certain authorized users:
(check out yourself; you should get a 401 result)

with the svn client (I tested versions 1.4.0 and 1.4.2), I can indeed
read the above:
% svn https://svn.uva.netherlight.nl/projects/ndl/
gives me all except the restricted access folders, without warnings.
This is expected.

% svn --username myaccount --password verysecret \
(with obviously correct username and password)
indeed gives met this non-public subfolder.
Again, as expected.

% svn --username myaccount --password verysecret \
Does get me exactly the same as when I did not give a username and
password, and ignores the Articles subfolder.

This is not what I expected: I expected that the subfolders would be
downloaded as well, as I did provide proper authentication.

Is this intended behaviour or a bug? I searched the list archive to find
simular problems, but all I could find were questions about setting up
the server (which seems fine here).

Unfortunately, debugging is hard as svn checkout does not have a
--verbose option, and I can not snoop on the actual HTTPS queries on the
wire, as HTTPS is encrypted.
