If *both* sides see a "Network connection closed unexpectedly" error at
the same time, I would suspect a firewall or proxy or a network
misconfiguration.  (That said, I don't see how enabling path-based authz
would affect the on-the-wire traffic, given that anon-access=none is set.)

Try 'svnauthz accessof' and check that your user is reported as "r" or "rw".

Try 'svn info svn://localhost' locally on the server: does it
fail in the same way as on the client?



P.S. If you don't have /dev/stdout you can use --log-file=/dev/fd/1 or
