Strange update problem

I have experiemented with setting up a http based repository such that I
have access to my stuff bith at home and from work, however I have run
into a strange problem.

If I do a regular update, it works as expected:

    ~ $ svn update

    Fetching external item into 'Sys/bin'
    External at revision 839.

    At revision 839.

but if I add the --non-interactive flag, I get the following error:

    ~ $ svn update --non-interactive
    svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/xxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
    svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/xxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx': authorization failed (http://www.xxxxxxxx)

Adding to the confusion, when I do the above at work, it also works
normally with the --non-interactive flag.

The work machine is a linux machine (with SuSE 10 something) running
subversion 1.4.3 whereas my home machine is an MacBook Air (intel)
running svn 1.4.4 (compiled locally through the Mac ports system).

I have compared contents of ~/.subversion and both 'config' and
'servers' are identically on the two machines. The relevant auth file is
not identical, but that could be related to the slightly different
versions of the svn client.

Does anybody know what is going on? It is pretty annoying as the
--non-interactive flag is used by the psvn emacs interface (for obvious
reasons=) that I am very fond of.
