Subversion and smartcards

I am trying to get subversion to work with a smartcard (gemalto
cryptoflex.net), on Windows. The server-side bit of the setup is correct
afaik. At least it works in my browser, I am prompted for a certificate
and then pin.

I am using svn 1.6.15. It looks like I should just specify the pkcs#11
provider dll, eg:


I have tried with the full path, and as above (the dll is on the path),
and without the extension. In all cases I get:

svn: Invalid config: unable to load PKCS#11 provider 'gtop11dotnet.dll'

or similar.

As far as I know the provider is valid, it works as expected with
Firefox. Is there something else I need to do on Windows? Or do I need a
customised build of svn where I make it aware of this provider? Or is
there a MSCAPI provider available, if so what name do I use?

I have searched long and hard on the internet, but nearly all the
(scarce) information available is related to linux and pakchois.

Cheers, jamie
