svn: Authorization failed

From: Erick Calder <e_at_arix.com>

I'm running Fedora 11 and installed from RPMs. last night I converted
my CVS repository, placing it in /var/svn. after editing the conf/
svnserve.conf to set use-sasl = false and the passwd to add an account
for myself, I'm trying to import something but either authentication
or authorization is failing, I don't know which - and I find the
server provides NO debugging output whatsoever to help.

as root, I run the server like this:

# svnserve -r /var/svn -d --foreground

on my laptop I try:

# svn import --username=myacct --password=mypass sys svn://mysvnserver/

and get:

svn: Authorization failed
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.1.tmp'

I've been on freenode#svn but find no one there to help and I've
already burnt too many hours googling and struggling. please help.

thx - e
