Got it figured out.  Turns out that it was a remnant of my conversion 
from self-built SVN to Christian Marillat's debs.   The installer 
generated random password was of course different from the one I entered 
manually when I installed CVN by hand. I've now found and set up all of 
the passwords correctly.
