get_parent_resource() on unknown url

Okay, so I no longer get the 502 error since I strictly defined
apache's hostname in httpd.conf. Instead, it's back to the same old
error whenever I send a COPY request:

[Thu Nov 01 14:41:13 2001] [error] [client] get_parent_resource was called for /testing/sussman/$svn/wrk/a0ae1e99-d11d-b211-97da-845f131397f6/fundir/foo2 (type 1) [500, #0]

It seems the mod_dav is calling the dav_svn_get_parent_resource() hook
on a non-existent URL. The URL doesn't exist because we're trying to
create it: it's the "Destination" header in the COPY request. By the
time the resource is passed to the hook, mod_dav (or someone else) has
already tagged resource as type 1 ("unknown"). So the hook chokes as
it's currently written.

I simply don't understand DAV well enough to find a solution. Should
the hook assume that any type-1 resources are due to copies or moves,
and explicitly handle them? Should it attempt to construct a parent
resource anyway (via dav_svn_create_private_resource)?

Or is this a bigger problem in mod_dav itself? Should mod_dav not be
labeling the resource as type-1?

Awaiting enlightenment from gstein.
