I haven't seen this error before, and I just did a fresh checkout to 
/tmp as anon w/o problems.

I'm using (from Darwin Ports): svn, version 1.1.1 (r11581)
    compiled Jan  3 2005, 08:45:07

The above does look like maybe the login/password is not accepted. Try
  1) remove --username/--password from the options to see if it then 
prompts for password and
  2) remove the ~/.subversion directory (where it caches authentication)

#2 will remove cached authentications, your configuration (if you have 
one) etc. -- so maybe back it up first, if you think there might be 
info in there you need.

I could, but it would be nice to figure out why svn isn't working :)

svn should be better than rsynch, I have the repository checked out as 
~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles -- that way, I just need 
to cd to that directory and do 'svn up' when there's new stuff, and I 
can naturally also commit my customizations directly.

Can anyone with the Fink svn-client-ssl please try to do a full 
checkout of the repository, preferably with the same version as Mark, 
to check if the problem is related to this build of svn?

Thanks! And I'm of course also grateful for all the work that goes into 
contributing with bundle stuff!
