Cannot negotiate authentication mechanism under Windows

I am running an SVN 1.7 server on a Linux box utilizing svnserve. I can
access it from external Linux and Mac boxes without a problem
utilizing Cyrus SASL authentication.

I have a Windows 7 box with CollabNet SVN 1.7.9 installed. It shows
support for Cyrus SASL authentication.

When I try: svn list svn://xxxx.xxxx.xxx/yyyyy

(Obviously the xxx and yyy above are what is valid for my configuration. I
am using the exact same command that works on all the other boxes!)

I get:

svn: E210007: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
svn: E210007: Cannot negotiate authentication mechanism

I have spent four hours on this with no luck. I've tried turing off all
firewalls and anti-virus programs. I tried installing a number of
different versions of SVN. I tried passing the username and password on
the command line. I've tried, and tried, and tried.

I am running Windows under the latest version of VMWare but everything else
has been working on it for a long time.

Any help would sure be appreciated.
