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

I faced the same trouble yesterday. I use svnserve 1.5.2 on SuSE 11. I installed Subversion from packages repository on Novell site.
The culprit was the -R switch in default options for svnserve in /etc/sysconfig/svnserve:

SVNSERVE_OPTIONS="-d -R -r /srv/svn/repos".

I removed the switch and after svnserve restart the commit works as expected both locally and remotely (TortoiseSVN). I also tried to return the switch and after that the commit failed again with the unfortunate and misleading message "Authorization failed".

Hope that helps.
