WEB-DAV Proxy Mirroring problem or just bad configuration?

Hi Guys,

   We've been using the WEB-DAV proxy/mirroring with pretty good results
for the last couple of months.

I've got our master (remote) Subversion server running on a Win2K3 server
with Subversion 1.4.2 with http and svn access to it.

On our local slave mirror server, I've got RHEL4 with Subversion
1.5.0-23022 and httpd 2.2.4 running with proxy turned on and the local
(mirror) with "svn" method for svnsync commits and http for updates/commits
for users.

My understanding was that this *should* allow us to continue to access our
(local) mirror repository when the master was down, but this turns out to
not be the case.

Our master server was down for a couple of days and when we tried to
update on the slave server, we got a variety of error messages, usually
(but not always) it would take several minutes (like a wait timeout)
before we got the error message.

I verified that the local (mirror) httpd was running and our local
svnserver process was up and they were doing fine. Our Daily build could
check out via the "svn" metthod but when we tried to update via http from
the local mirror it would not allow us.

Sometimes (but not always) the error would be authorization.

Do I have something mis-configured on my local mirror proxy or is this a
bug in Subversion?

My first guess is that it is re-directing the authorization requests to
the master instead of handling them locally, but that is just a gues.

Any thoughts, info pointers, etc., would be greatly appreciated.
