I am having trouble setting path based permissions. My Subversion server is
running on a Windows XP professional box. I am using svnserve, and NOT
Apache. I have verified that the server is respecting and looking at the
authz file, because the following was needed to access the repository:

@internal = rw

However, if I try to do set any specific path based permissions, I always
receive the "Authorization failed" message in the Repository Browser of
TortoiseSVN. Even trying to specify the root project folder, like so:

test = r

returns an "Authorization failed" error when trying to browse the

Setting permissions seems extremely straightforward, but everything I have
tried does not seem to work. Is there something obvious I am missing?
