Check your apache config. Maybe you have backslashes used in there where
you should have used forward slashes. Or a slash at the end of a path
where there shouldn't be one (or vice versa).

The best thing to do would be to compare your apache config sections
from the http and https sections - find the differences and maybe you
can see a difference which doesn't have anything to do with http/https.

Also try the Windows Subversion client - you can't really compare the
Linux client and the windows clients.
the commands you should use:
'svn info http://url'
'svn ls -v http://url'
