Please, please update to the latest version. It doesn't cost you a dime.

The "301 Moved Permanently" error happens usually because of a
not-quite-proper apache config. For example, with your server version
that error can happen if you put your repository in the virtual root.

Just Google for "PROPFIND 301" and you'll get tons of post from people
which had the same problem. But since that problem is really a server
problem, you should maybe ask on the Subversion mailing list if you
don't find an answer with googling.

PROPFIND is a DAV request (like e.g. GET or PUT for 'normal' http is).
It fails depending on which url/path you're working on.
