I did the same steps, so, I have only a few wild guesses below ...

Not sure if it makes a difference, but you might want to try passing
a --username option to the checkout command.  If that fails, it would
indicate a rather general problem with your svn account and not just
your svn committer status.

Just for you to double-check against my SVN version (on Windows XP
and Cygwin, downloaded from http://subversion.tigris.org):

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
    compiled Apr  3 2005, 22:02:31

For a test, I deleted the 'auth' direcory in the svn user config:
   C:\Documents and Settings\MD\Application Data\Subversion\auth

When re-committing the README.txt with the --username again, I got
ask whether to acceppt a certificate (permanently) and to enter my
password again. The directory 'auth' got created from scratch.

Maybe it helps if you start over with a fresh 'auth' directory?

BTW, I had to change the svn 'servers' file for a firewall proxy.

Don't know much about subversion, but with cvs, there's indeed
a (server) configuration file that contains the list of accounts
with read-only access.

Perhaps, it's similar with svn and a svnadmin has to explicitely
enable your account for write access.
