kerberos authentication with neon 0.29.3

I get the following error from TortoiseSVN 1.6.7 (neon 0.29.3) when trying to perform any CM action: "PROPFIND of /Fqa/test authorisation failed.could not authenticate to
server.could not parse challenge https://server"
and by looking on the server access log we can see that there is no
passing of a ticket to the apache server.

TortoiseSVN 1.6.6 (neon 0.28.6) works fine.

Moreover, I get the following error from ALL VERSIONS of AnkhSVN 2.1 (neon 0.29.3) when trying to perform any CM action from VisualStudio 2010 (since AnkhSVN 2.0 does not integrate with VisualStudio 2010): "You failed to authorize against the remote repository"

AnkhSVN 2.0 (specific version I have is 2.0.6347.443, with neon 0.28.3) works fine.
AnkhSVN 2.1 (neon 0.29.3) doesn't work with VisualStudio 2005,2008,2010.

Hope this is more detailed.

Hi.  You need to be more specific about the "problems" you are seeing for anybody to be able to help you.  What errors are you seeing on the client?  Did use of a previous version of neon work?  I'm not aware of any specific regressions in 0.29.x.
