selective authz does not work with apache module

I'm trying to selectively allow access to parts of a svn tree exposed
through apache. The authz file looks like this:

externalgroups = @one, @two, WichertA

* = rw

@externalgroups =
@ipe = rw
* = r

If I try to access /projects/Workbench/IPE3-Gaius using the WichertA account
I expect to be denied access, but the *=r line allows me access. If I
add a "WichertA=" line access is denied, but only for the first attempt:
any further attemps succeed.

The documentation suggests that the first matching entry in the authz
group will be used, which is not happening here. I see this both with
subversion 1.5.3 and 1.4.2.
