Everything looks OK to me - so I can only guess you're typing in the wrong password... You
don't have the caps-lock on by any chance? Could it have been on when you typed in the password
during the htpasswd command? To be sure, recreate the password file with the PW on the command
line:

# htpasswd -b -c /path/to/.pwFile username pwd

To get it going, choose a *really* simple password, like "x"..
