Reverse Proxy issue ?

I have a Slackware-current box which comes installed with Apache 1.3.31. I
have installed Apache 2.0.50 (listening on port 8080) and Subversion 1.0.6 on
the same box and I am trying to create a ReverseProxy from my Apache 1.3.31 to
the Apache 2.0.50.

I have added to my Apache 1.3.31 /etc/apache/httpd.conf file:
ProxyRequest off
ProxyPass /svn/ http://localhost:8080/

and I have configured the following as part of the Apache 2.0.50 .conf file:
<Location /public>
        Dav svn
        SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn/repository/public
</Location>

Now when I do:
svn checkout http://localhost:8080/public/repos1/trunk

then I am able to checkout the trunk with no problems.

If I do:
svn checkout http://mysite.com/svn/public/repos1/trunk

then I get the following errors:
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/public/repos1/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: '/public/repos1/!svn/vcc/default' path not found

If I change the ProxyPass entry in my Apache 1.3.31 /etc/apache/httpd.conf
file to:
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/

and then I do:
svn checkout http://mysite.com/public/repos1/trunk

then I am able to successfully check out the trunk. But then that totally
disables all my interactive web pages that I have setup on my Apache 1.3.31
htdocs directory (this is not acceptable)

This suggests to me that that '/svn/' is somehow getting stripped in
subsequent http requests, either by the svn client or by the mod_proxy.

Anyone have any ideas, comments, as to what is going on here?
