Strange that we appear to check the target before the source. And the
user appears to be in a group called 'repo_SVN Administrator' that has
'rw' on the repository root. (Can groups contain spaces?)

Also, '*' has read access - is that 'all users' or 'all non-anonymous
users' (I know, I should know that), it's the hypothesised read subrequest
that appears to be failing.

Oh, I assumed the 'COPY' text in the log was the method used in the
subrequest? The arguments in the subrequest certainly appear to contain
both source and destination -- why would we generate two subrequests?
