I really have no idea what the WinAuthz.ini file is and what VisualSVN
does with it. It's impossible to say if your result is expected if we
don't see the contents of the authz file.

But yes, 'svnauthz' will calculate access for users, not for groups. A
user can be a member of several groups and the actual rights she has can
be a combination of rights granted to the groups.
