Those seem to be tools in the Debian package.
I've never used those, I prefer to edit the Apache configuration directly.
At least then I know what's happening :-)

Well. whatever. As long as they work...

Which tells us that the problem is not at all related to the SSL
configuration, right?
> SSL should be disabled, right?
That doesn't make a difference (at the moment).
> I don't know where it's getting "MrDoomMaster" from
If you don't specify a user on the command line, the client tries to
guess a user - I think it's either a user you've used before or your
local (Windows) user. If authentication fails with that user, it asks
for a different user.

Well, yes. But the server doesn't (and shouldn't!!!) tell your client
which are valid users... The client is supposed to know that!

Please show us the section from your Apache-configuration where you set
up Subversion.
It should probably be a LOCATION-directive.

You DID configure Subversion, right?
