Removing rights with path based authentication

Hello all

I am using SSPI and path based authentication on an Apache server.
For the most part, everything seems to work as I expect. There is one
example in
chapter 3 of the tortoiseSVN manual that doesn't work on my system.
In the excerpt of the svnaccessfile.txt below, rights are removed from
Dan German aka dangerman:

# Default access rule for ALL repositories
# Everyone can read, admins can write, Dan German is excluded.
* = r
@admin = rw
dangerman =

I find that I cannot remove rights in this fashion. In my
installation, dangerman can still see and retrieve files. If on the
other hand, I added this statement:

dangerman = rw

then dangerman would also be able to write as expected. So it seems that
I can add rights in this fashion, but I cannot remove them. Has anyone
else had this experience?
