If you could disable AuthzSVNAccessFile, or move the test repository to
another Location that doesn't have authz, and then try the commit we
could determine whether Subversion's authz is the problem. The apache
error log may also have some relevant information about the 401.

I don't have an Apache 2.0 build to test so I can't determine whether
the problem is related to using 2.0. Perhaps something in 2.0 is
causing the 401 instead of a 404.
