 configure Apache authorization to control access to parts of the
 repository, rahter than to whole repositories. The two may well be
 connected, because those Apache authz configs I've seen posted to the
 list all ignore the fact that the public URLs are /not/ where the
 changes are made. Is it possible that this confuses Apache (or rather,
 mod_dav_svn) so much that it does stupid things to the repo?

Not for me at least. I protect the whole repository. I do however
have an HTML and an XML method of browsing the repository.

# Subversion server using HTML format.
Location /repos
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /export/home2/svn-ow/repos
    SVNReposName OrcaWare

    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName Subversion repository
    AuthUserFile /export/home2/svn-ow/passwd
    AuthGroupFile /export/home2/svn-ow/groups

    LimitExcept GET OPTIONS PROPFIND REPORT
        Require group svn_committers
    /LimitExcept
/Location

# Subversion server using XML format.
Location /repos-xml
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /export/home2/svn-ow/repos
    SVNReposName OrcaWare
    SVNIndexXSLT http://svn.orcaware.com/svnindex.xsl

    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName Subversion repository
    AuthUserFile /export/home2/svn-ow/passwd
    AuthGroupFile /export/home2/svn-ow/groups

    # Do not do commits against the XML URL. Use the HTML one
    # instead.
    LimitExcept GET OPTIONS PROPFIND REPORT
        Require group nonexistent_group
    /LimitExcept
/Location

Best,
Blair
