Problem starting up Apache on Win32 with mod_dav_svn loaded, but not from command line

Hi !

I just finished installing Subversion and Apache again. I downloaded
Apache 2.0.47 and SVN 0.26.0. I setup Apache and made sure I could
browse the server's manual. Then, I copied the *.so files from SVN's
folder to the modules/ folder in Apache. Then, I setup my httpd.conf
file to properly load the modules.

Here are the relevant parts of my httpd.conf:
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
#LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so
<Location /repos>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath "J:/svn/repos"

        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Subversion repository"
        AuthUserFile J:/security/svn.passwd

# AuthzSVNAccessFile J:/security/svn.authz

        Require valid-user

If I leave everything like that and I try to start the server through the
Apache Monitor (as a service), the Monitor reports an error while
starting the service, and Apache does not start. When I check my Windows
Event Log, I find these message:
The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> Syntax error on line 908 of G:/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf: .

The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> Cannot load G:/Apache2/modules/mod_dav_svn.so into server: Le module spécifié est introuvable. .

Line 908 is the line where I load the mod_dav_svn module.

If I go to the command line, and CD into the bin/ folder, then execute
the Apache executable, it starts up fine and I browse the repository and
use the SVN command-line client to ls the repository.

Anybody can help me with that ? I set the LogLevel to debug so I could
see what is wrong, but to no avail. No more information is available in
the Apache error log.

Previously, I had Apache working using 0.25.0 on my Win XP machine with
Apache 2.0.47, but I had to reinstall due to a HD crash. I now have
Win2K SP4.

Thanks for any help or pointers...

Bye !
