1.5 clients can't authenticate to 1.4.6 Server

We've been using Subversion for a while now in our lab with the following setup:

The server is an Ubuntu Hardy machine with the standard Subversion
1.4.6 installed, which is accessed through apache. We are using
digest authentication.

Here is the relevant portion of our apache.conf file:

    <Location /subversion >
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /home/subversion

        AuthzSVNAccessFile /home/subversion/svn.auth
        AuthType Digest
        AuthName "Subversion"
        AuthDigestProvider file
        AuthUserFile /home/webauth/webauth.password
        AuthDigestDomain /webauth
        Require valid-user

Recently, people have been updating to 1.5 clients, and we are finding
that they can no longer authenticate in order to commit. Is this a
known problem? Do we need to update the configuration in some way?

Thanks in advance for any help.
