We have almost the exact same set-up and it works here.
The two differences I see are that we authenticate
against an AD server (using LDAP) and that that we've got

    AuthLDAPBindDN "{subversion-user}"
    AuthLDAPBindPassword "{subversion-password}"

in the <Location> directory.

It took a while before I understood why my simple test
setup worked while our main repository didn't. The
difference was that the test setup did not use "* = r"
in the access file.
