Problem with SVN + Sasl2 + Auxprop + Sasldb

I'm new to administrating SVN, but I have read about half (the most relevant sections) of "Version Control with Subversion" from svnbook.red-bean.com. I spent about 3-4 hours Googling this problem, but I found nothing that was able to help me move forward with my new SVN server.

Here's my setup:

OpenSUSE Linux 10.3
SVN 1.6.15 (r1038135)
Sasl version 2.1.22 by "Cyrus SASL"

Here's my configuration (I'm logged in as root for all of this):

$ ls -l /svn/repos/conf/
total 12
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1080 2011-02-03 11:08 authz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 309 2011-02-03 11:08 passwd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2259 2011-02-03 22:36 svnserve.conf

$ more /svn/repos/conf/svnserve.conf
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
authz-db = authz
realm = NWTechServe

use-sasl = true
min-encryption = 256
max-encryption = 512

$ ls -l /etc/sasl2/
total 16
-rw-r----- 1 root root 12288 2011-02-05 11:04 nwts-db
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47 2011-02-05 11:03 slapd.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 102 2011-02-05 11:03 svn.conf

$ more /etc/sasl2/slapd.conf (already set up by Sasl)
mech_list: gssapi digest-md5 cram-md5 external

$ more /etc/sasl2/svn.conf
pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sasldb
sasldb_path: /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
mech_list: DIGEST-MD5

$ saslpasswd2 -c -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db -u NWTechServe nicholas
[entered password]

$ sasldblistusers2 -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
nicholas_at_NWTechServe: userPassword

$ /etc/init.d/saslauthd start

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password]
0: NO "authentication failed"

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -r NWTechServe
0: NO "authentication failed"

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -s svn
0: NO "authentication failed"

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -r NWTechServe -s svn
0: NO "authentication failed"

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
connect() : Connection refused

$ testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -r NWTechServe -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
connect() : Connection refused

$testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -s svn -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
connect() : Connection refused

$testsaslauthd -u nicholas -p [password] -r NWTechServe -s svn -f /etc/sasl2/nwts-db
connect() : Connection refused

I've also tried running svnserve (as root) and trying to connect but "svn: Could not obtain the list of SASL mechanisms". However, I don't think that result is even valid yet, as I can't even successfully test my Sasl configuration.

I'm hoping I'm making an obvious error that someone on this list will see.

Any ideas?
