commits not working with SVNParentPath

I recently installed Subversion 0.37 on Apache 2.0.48, and am having
trouble getting it to work properly when using SVNParentPath. After
doing some extensive experiments, I did a Google search and found a
similar report, but no responses, so I thought I'd prod again to see
if I could get some help:


When I configure Subversion using SVNPath to specify the absolute path
of the repository, everything works beautifully. However, when I
switched to SVNParentPath, things go awry. Checkout works okay, but
commits fail with the following message:

  svn: Commit failed (details follow):
  Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

The error_log reports:

[Thu Feb 19 01:15:37 2004] [error] [client] (20014)Error string not specified yet: Can't open file '/data/svn/repos/error/format': No such file or directory
[Thu Feb 19 01:15:37 2004] [error] [client] Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0]
[Thu Feb 19 01:15:37 2004] [error] [client] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]
[Thu Feb 19 01:15:37 2004] [error] [client] (7)Argument list too long: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]

Also, when I try a "make check BASE_URL=..." to run the tests, all of
the tests starting with basic-tests.py fail.

What I find very strange about the error message is the first line;
Subversion is trying to access a file in the parent path that doesn't
exist. This same behavior was reported in the other message I cited

Configuration is as follows:

* Parent path is /data/svn/repos. I tried both leaving this directory
  alone, and also creating a repository in it using svnadmin; both
  resulted in the same error. The repository below is /data/svn/test.
  I created this using svnadmin.

* Apache config is:

    ErrorLog /data/svn/logs/error_log
    CustomLog /data/svn/logs/access_log combined
    <Location />
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /data/svn/repos
        SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

  I actually have some auth stuff there, but I removed it for the sake
  of testing.

Suggestions? Thanks.
