Ok, I'm now officially confused :-), I misinterpreted what you said before:

    "What's new in svn 0.33, however, is that each path coming back to the
    client is the report-response is now 'internally' authorized by
    mod_dav_svn. Before putting the path in the response, mod_dav_svn makes
    an internal 'subrequest' to apache: "hey, would a GET of this
    repository path succeed?" If yes, then everything's fine.

    So the error you're seeing is that somehow mod_dav_svn has decided that
    a GET of the root-directory of your checkout would not succeed."

I thought that would imply that for a REPORT to succeed every GET subrequest
for every path to be returned by REPORT had also to succeed taking apache
constraints into account.

So, since a GET subrequest must succeed shouldn't this:

       Require valid-user

be changed to this:

       Require valid-user

(I can already hear a loud "OF COURSE, DIDNT YOU RTFM!") :-) Well, I did
rtfm but it just
slipped through... and now I'm also officially embarrassed.
