I've seen problems where a person's docroot contains one or more of the path
elements in the repository's Location path.

For example:

<Location /repos/svn>

If you have a repos/svn/ directory in your docroot, then funny things can
happen. I think just a repos/ will be fine.

But take a look. See if your old (borken) location had a mapping elsewhere
in your config or within the docroot. That may have been the problem.
