Software complexity (502 Bad Gateway)

Here is a problem with solution. Perhaps someone searching the archives
may benefit from it.

But mostly, it's just a short "holy cow, software can get really hairy"
story I want to share with you. Just in case you thought that the
"restricted folder underneath public root" was complex. Hah.

Problem: svn move does not work. After a svn move, a commit results in
the error:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: COPY of newname.txt: 502 Bad Gateway (https://svn.example.org)

No, we do not *have* a reverse HTTP proxy, in case you was going to
suggest that as possible cause.

Solution:
Copy the "SSLEngine on" directive to another location in the Apache
configuration.

"Huh?" You may ask. If you like to know why, the details are at
http://www.science.uva.nl/research/air/wiki/Subversion502BadGateway

I'd say this is another nice example of Leaky abstractions [1].

Now my head hurts. Have a nice day. :-)
