This may have to do with how the repositories are set up. I am trying to
make the root directory a parent of all repositories (Dav svn and
SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn), so that /java would be a repository the
client is allowed to access. When the client tries to do a PROPFIND on
/, the server notes that PROPFIND is a valid method (because of Dav svn)
but that the client is not allowed to access /.

If, on the other hand, nothing is setup for the root and instead a
single depository location is specified in /java (Dav svn and SVNPath
/usr/local/svn/java) and the client tries to access /, WebDAV hasn't
even been enabled for the root. Apache notes that PROPFIND isn't even a
method allowed for / before checking to see if the client has
appropriate permissions.

I still find it strange that svn ever sends a PROPFIND / in the first
place, as the repository should be in /java and that is the URL requested.
