Thank you very much, this finally pointed me to the core of the problem:
my setup was actually working all the time, but tortoise asks for a
password for every single action in the background (had password cache
switched off for testing), so I had to enter it 5 or 6 times for a
look into the repo-browser.. after the second password prompt I always
gave up and thought it wasn't working...

Thanks again!

Greetz, Anja
