Yup, it's a problem with your <Location> block. You're using the
LimitExcept option on only 3 of the 4 'read' methods:

      Require valid-user

You forgot to put 'GET' in there. In other words, clients can do
REPORTS and PROPFINDs and OPTIONS requests without any authentication,
but a simple GET requires authentication.

The authorization system happening with mod_dav_svn is simply checking
whether you have "read" access or not -- it *assuming* that GET is a
read action (it tries to do a dry-run GET under the hood to test). But
you've managed to leave GET out of the set of read-actions by accident.

Anyway, put the GET back in, and you should be fine.
