SASL Problem: Could not obtain the list of SASL mechanisms

Hi, I'm trying to set up my first Subversion server, but I'm running into a
problem with SASL.

As long as SASL is disabled in svnserve.conf, I can connect to the repository
without trouble. However, as soon as I set "use-sasl = true" the client fails
with the following message:

"Could not obtain the list of SASL mechanisms"

I can't find out what is going wrong. Any pointers or solutions would be much




Server is running Debian 5.0, using the SVN and SASL packages from the testing
branche. Client is Windows 2000 using TortoiseSVN.

The svnserve.conf contains:

use-sasl = true
min-encryption = 128
max-encryption = 256

Turning off encryption made no difference.

The SASL config in /usr/lib/sasl2/svn.conf:

pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sasldb
mech_list: DIGEST-MD5

Trying other mechanisms (tried ANONYMOUS and CRAM-MD5) made no difference.
