I see you came across this problem with 1.1.1 (judging by the archives).
Unfortunately I can't get this option to work very well for me.
Some timings for svn log (repeated three times on an unloaded server):

No SVNAuthPath directive: 36.9, 30.8, 31.0
SVNAuthPath off : 18.4, 23.9, 2:34 (!)
No directive, patched : 4.4, 3.9, 4.4

No idea what caused the glitch for the 2:34 time. Note - this is svn 1.2
apache 2.0.52, ldap authentication. Are these timings what you'd expect?
