Path based authorization not working

Hello all,
I am trying to get path based authorization to work, but so far with little success. For a test case I have made two users, of which one should get access to everything and the other should get access to the "Banana" folder only. If I use the code below, though, the result is that user Joost has access to everything, while user Test cannot access anything at all. This is the error I get when trying to checkout with Test:
"Error PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/SVNRespository
Error PROPFIND of '/svn/SVNRepository': 403 Forbidden (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)"
This is the authorization file I use:
Test =
Joost = rw
Test = rw
This is the folder as it should be after checking out on d:/svn: "d:/svn/Banana". And this is the repository on the server: "d:/SVNRepositories/SVNRepository".
If I give Test rw access to [SVNRepository:/], then he can check out everything, including the Banana folder.
What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks in advance,
