Subversion Apache server file authentication error

Hi,

I set up my Apache server to authenticate using both file and ldap
authentication.

I created some usernames as specified in the subversion book in this manner:

htpasswd -m <auth-file> <username>

I then give it a password.

Next, I test the username with this command:

svn info --username <username> <URL>/repo

Password for '<username>':

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (401 Authorization Required)
in response to OPTIONS request

What is strange is that I follow the same procedure and it works for
some of the user names I’ve created and does not for others. I’ve
restarted the server as well.

How to proceed now?

Thanks.
