"svn: Authorization failed"; what am I doing wrong?

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up a subversion server for storing my personal
projects. However, I can't actually get it working!

After reading chapters 5 and 6 in the subversion book, I've installed
subversion on my server (Debian etch, subversion version 1.4.2
(r22196)), created the repository and edited the relevant files. The
firewall (Shorewall) is set to allow svn traffic to and from the local
network.

On the server:
drtwox_at_server:~$ mkdir svn
drtwox_at_server:~$ svnadmin create svn
drtwox_at_server:~$ vim svn/conf/svnserve.conf
[general]
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
authz-db = authz
realm = projects

drtwox_at_server:~$ vim svn/conf/passwd
[users]
drtwox = password

drtwox_at_server:~$ vim svn/conf/authz
[projects:/home/drtwox/svn]
drtwox = rw

drtwox_at_server:~$ svnserve -r /home/drtwox/svn/ -d

On the client:
drtwox_at_thinkpad:~$ mkdir project
drtwox_at_thinkpad:~$ touch project/testfile.c
drtwox_at_thinkpad:~$ rm -fr /home/drtwox/.subversion/auth/
drtwox_at_thinkpad:~$ svn import project svn://server/home/drtwox/svn -m
"Initial import"
Authentication realm: <svn://server:3690> projects
Password for 'drtwox': password
svn: Authorization failed

What am I doing wrong?
