No, its a known problem with how apache method handler registration and
mod_dav_svn interact. cmpilato discovered the problem and gstein and Ryan
Bloom (an apr/httpd hacker are working out the best way to get it working).

There are a couple of workarounds for it right now.

1) Don't use the LimitExcept part of the Location. The auths are fine, just
don't add the LimitExcept.

2) Create a dummy directory inside the repository. (This is why svn itself
works. We have the "trunk" directory, which no one actually checks out.

Hopefully the issue will be worked out in the very near future.
