As far as MacOS X behaves problematic, it may make more sense to contact
their WebDAV developer Jim Luther (luther.j@apple.com). He may be able to
explain why the driver works the way it does, and whether it can be changed.
As far as I remember, the DAV driver stuff even resides in the public part
of MacOS X (Darwin?), so may be able to check for yourself (and possibly
experiment with changes).

In general: fix the clients instead of putting unnecessary workarounds into
servers :-)
