I have actually never seen the <C:error/> tag used, and my experiments show that in most scenarios, it is discarded.
Then again, I wrote the WebDAV "stack" that I am using, so that may very well be the case.
The part that is usually shown to the user is the text inside <m:human-readable errcode="..."/>

From my experiments, it seems that the error text is being loaded from a resource file, and not read from the server response.
