Bug: Can't set position pointer in file

Bug

When using mod_dav_svn (subversion 1.3.0 (r17949)) with apache 2.2.0 I
get the following error when trying to check out from my repository:

[Mon Jan 16 17:11:46 2006] [error] [client 81.130.207.88] Could not
fetch resource information. [500, #0]
[Mon Jan 16 17:11:46 2006] [error] [client 81.130.207.88] Could not open
the root of the repository [500, #22]
[Mon Jan 16 17:11:46 2006] [error] [client 81.130.207.88] Can't set
position pointer in file '/srv/svn/db/revs/3': Invalid argument [500, #22]

My repository is set up in /srv/svn and has full write access for all
users (777).

The svn request that causes the error is /svn co
http://www.ecommerce-consultancy.co.uk/svn/trunk/eccgroup/. This check
out works correctly when using /svn co file:///srv/svn/trunk/eccgroup/
though.

My httpd.conf file section is as follows:

#Subversion
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn

  SVNPath /srv/svn

  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Subversion repository"
  AuthUserFile "/usr/share/apache2/etc/svn-auth-file"

  Require valid-user
</Location>

This appears to be a bug with subversion, as this worked correctly on
the previous version of subversion with the same apache configuration
file. (Same apache version, different operating system (Win2k Server as
oppose to SuSE 9.3), same apache config file).

I am running on a SuSE 9.3 server and built subversion with the
following configure options:
/configure --with-apxs=/usr/share/apache2/bin/apxs
--with-apr=/usr/share/apache2/bin/apr-1-config
--with-apr-util=/usr/share/apache2/bin/apu-1-config

I have tried asking on the users mailing group, but no one has been able
to help, or confirm whether this is a bug or if I am missing something.
I apologise if this is a mistake on my part, but I have tried every
build and configuration option that I can think of, which leads me to
believe that this in fact a bug.

Any clarification or help would be much appreciated.

Regards

Jamie
