Sasl and svnserve does not work

Hello list,

 i have a problem with svnserve + sasl auth. Version is 1.5.1 running on
Debian Lenny 64bit.

I Created a repo named "gdiproject" and a svnserve.conf and a

# [general]
# anon-access = none
# auth-access = write
# password-db = passwd
# authz-db = authz
# realm = gdiproject
# [sasl]
# use-sasl = true
# min-encryption = 128
# max-encryption = 256


# pwcheck_method: auxprop
# auxprop_plugin: sasldb
# sasldb_path: /var/svn-repos/logins/svn_gdi_sasldb

When trying to execute a simple command like "info" i cannot login, and
/var/log/auth.log gives me this error:

"server svnserve: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or

In svn.conf i specified another file - why is sasl trying to load this
file and not the one specified?

The sasldb file was created like this: "saslpasswd2 -c -f svn_gdi_sasldb
-u gdiproject username" and has the rights 0660, owner
subversion:subverion (The user and group of SVN)

I hope you can help me to find out the reason for this strange behaviour.
Without using sasl and the plaintext passwd of svnserve everything works

Thanks in advance
