I am using SSPI OK on a server using apache 2.2 and svn 1.6.6 (I have not had time to upgrad
to 1.6.12 yet but will do so as soon as I get a chance).  So it is likely it will work, I
am only a few point releases out from what you want.

Can you post the relevant bits of your apache config (taking care of passwords etc)?  It might
help work out what is wrong.

Have you tried disabling the SSPI authentication temporarily to make sure you can connect
properly without it (make sure that svn authentication, if used, is working OK.
