Are you using svn: file: or http: to access the repository?

I am seeing the same problem on Linux when using svn: (snvserve).

The repository is set up with
anon-access = write

I can lock files in the repository using file: access but not svn: access. But I can commit changes via svn: sa well as file: so the basic authentication seems to be working.

To make it more frustrating it was working OK when I last used the repository towards the end of last year - and as far as I can make out nothing has changed in the setup except svnserve has been restarted.
