Digest problems with subversion 1.3

So lately I’ve upgrade my subversion client on OSX. I’ve installed the latest (=1.3.1) version from metlissian. Suddenly I could not longer commit! …at least to a subversion (1.2.x) repository that uses digest based authentication. I was always getting

Digest: user tcurdt: password mismatch: ...

in the apache error log. Since I also had changed something on the server lately and just did not expect the subversion client to be the problem I’ve ended up spending probably half a hour playing with the apache configuration and passwords. In the end downgrading my client to 1.2.3 solved it. Strange! What’s going on?

    You can install darwinports and install svn client 1.3.1 using it, the compiled svn will work correctly.
