The error code wasn't printed, I see, but it's E195023.

To be clear, did you run «svn mkdir file:///path/to/repo/foo/bar» or
«command mkdir /path/to/repo/foo/bar»? I think you meant the former,
but just to make sure.

As you say, file:// doesn't use authz.

Good call. Authz restrictions are indeed one possible cause of E195023.

Did you confirm that you modified the correct authz file?

Another cause of E195023 is HTTP status 403 responses. Those might be
returned by some proxy, too. Might that be the unknown recent change?
