Problem commiting over https

Hello all,

I've spent that past couple of days trying to configure Subversion,
and am fresh out of ideas now!

I've set up a Subversion server on my FreeBSD box, and locally, it all
works fine. I then installed Apache2 with mod_ssl, and frigged with
the config til I could svn co over https.

Then, I tried to commit some changes. This is where is all went
wrong. I've tried it with various clients, all with the same problem,
which leads me to believe its a problem with my server (and probably
Apache) setup.

Client errors:

bash-2.05a$ svn --version
Subversion Client, version 0.14.2 (r3033)
   compiled Sep 16 2002, 10:47:39

Copyright (C) 2000-2002 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema

bash-2.05a$ svn status
A test/test.txt
bash-2.05a$ svn commit -m "Commited"
svn: Error string not specified yet
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
The specified URI does not refer to this repository, so it is

On the Server side, Apache puts the following in its error.log 9with
IP address changed):

[Wed Sep 18 07:22:01 2002] [error] [client] Could not
CHECKOUT resource /!svn/bln/1. [409, #0]

 [409, #21114]

and this in access.log: - martin [18/Sep/2002:07:21:59 -0700] "OPTIONS /test

            /!svn/bln/1 HTTP/1.1" 409 266

Here are a few bits from my httpd.conf which might be relevant:

<VirtualHost _default_:443>

<Location />
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /repository
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Subversion Repository"
    AuthUserFile /usr/local/etc/svnuser.htpasswd
    Require valid-user

Can anyone help solve this problem?

- locally, everything works
- over https, checkout works
- over https, a commit fails

Thanks in advance,
