Ok thanks, did not think about that.
I have tried the commands you suggested and tested the SSL connection.
As far as I can see the connection is setup correctly, all certificates
are in order, not expired, valid, etc, There are no errors, warning
whatsoever so the interaction between client and apache via https seems
to be ok.
When using the svn software though it throws the error mentioned in the
first post.
I have tested it also with a similar setup on a different machine with a
different certificate but the same software versions and it works.

So I guess the problem is this specific client certificate though I
still do not know what specifically.
