TortoiseSVN has no problem operating on this repository, so
either there's a bug in the binary, or, more likely, I haven't
configured something in the command-line environment.
The relevant portion of svnserve.conf:
use-sasl = true
min-encryption = 128
max-encryption = 256
and svn.conf:
pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sasldb
mech_list: DIGEST-MD5
