"Authorization failed" problem

I have been trying to resolve an "Authorization failed" SVN problem for
the past several days without success. I'm hoping someone here might have
some words of wisdom. I have looked at the FAQ, online documentation and
the SVN book without finding a solution.

The setup is SVN running as a service on a Windows XP Professional system.
I have one project in the repository I created where I can successfully do
development as well as vendor drops using the svn_load_dirs.pl script.

However, I just attempted to add another project, also doing a vendor drop,
and was successful at doing an initial populate, but every time since the
vendor drop has failed with:

Running C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/svn commit --non-interactive -m Load
E:\pilant\tmp\xxxx-93795 into xxxx/.

c:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svn_load_dirs.pl: C:/Program
Files/Subversion/bin/svn commit --non-interactive -m Load
E:\pilant\tmp\xxxx-93795 into xxxx/.
 failed with this output:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Authorization failed
Press return to quit and clean up svn working directory:

At first I thought it might be a file ownership problem, as I have run into
this with the other project in the past. However, I have verified the
ownership for all the SVN files are the same between the two projects.

BTW, all of the SVN activity is taking place on the system running the
SVN service and holding the repository.

The only two lines in the repository svnserve.conf file are:

    anon-access = write
    auth-access = write

What I am attempting to do is create a reference copy of the code out on
the web. I don't expect we will be making any changes other than to get
it building locally.

Any comments or suggestions welcome.
