This is really a mod_auth_sspi question and nothing to do with svn,
and would probably be better asked at

That said, it sounds like to me that if SSPI authentication (indicated
by "Connecting to mydomain.com") fails, you are falling back to Basic
Authentication (indicated by "basic authentication without a secure
connection"). It looks like you don't have BA set up quite right - but
as I've never used the module in question, I can't really help much
