[hibernate-dev] Unable to checkout core/trunk/core

Just an update: I upgraded my SVN client and Eclipse plugin both to
the 1.6 series with no better luck. That 403 error on that mystery
path is beyond me. Since it errors on the REPORT command, I wonder if
your guys Apache is setup to handle that command? Notice it's not a
404 so a file is found, but it is forbidden.

I did try both JavaHL and SVNKit interfaces. Just for a reminder,
here's the error:

checkout http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/hibernate/core/branches/Branch_3_3/core
-r HEAD --depth=infinity --force
    svn: REPORT of '/repos/hibernate/!svn/vcc/default': 403 Forbidden

Anyway, my only workaround is that I have to check out a root (such as
http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/hibernate/core/branches/Branch_3_3). If
I go any deeper, like into the sub-project I actually want, that error
immediately rears its ugly head.
