Troubles with VirtualHost configuration: never asked for password

Dear subversion users
I'm having a hard time configuring my virtual host to restrict access to my subversion repository. This is what my conf looks like:
#Virtual Host Configuration
Without the "Order Allow,Deny" + "Allow from all" directive the default virtual host configuration takes over and access is denied ("Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request..."). But with the directives I'm never asked for a password. According to all the manuals I consulted on the web, this setup _should_ challenge the user for a password (stored in /etc/subversion/passwd). Do I need to configure something else, i.e. modify stuff in /usr/local/svn/myproject/conf?
