lock request returns "405 Method Not Allowed"

[Posted yesterday on the USERS mailing list]
  I've installed a subversion server from 1.4.3 sources on Fedora Core 3 (2.6.12-1.1381_FC3)
All svn commands are executed correctly except for LOCK.
Issuing a LOCK request on a source file always reports "405 Method not Allowed".
Inveswtigation with strace reveals that the .svn/log file on the working directory
does not exist (should it?). Creating it by hand does not resolve the issue.
  The working directory has been created as a result of a CHECKOUT request.
All files in the repository have been chown to apache:apache after creating it with the SVNADMIN command.
The subversion.conf file as well as other information follows.
I do not know what else to look at for ideas.
Your help is very much appreciated.
