Hello,

I have had a recent thread about such a problem (stretching back over the last year):-

http://subversion.markmail.org/thread/q57ffzbhrdv6ydhp

My problem seems to be related to specific characters in the password being mangled by subversion when being passed to the server that the browser manages to pass fine. So far I have positively identified the `` character as an issue. Could this be your problem? Can you change your password to something as ASCII as possible and try again?

Hope this helps,
