Conflict between webDav and svnserve ?

I'm trying to set up a subversion repository. I first installed it with
an apache server, and it worked correctly, but very slowly (about 8s to
diff two normal sized files, on a local network). I then tried to
install svnserve to see if it worked faster. I installed it, and it
worked (significantly faster).

So, if everything works, where is the problem ? Well, after the second
installation, I tried to access the data through http:// once more, but
then it failed. And more than just failing, it corrupted the database
every time every time I tried. Access through svn:// of file:// still
works (well, after I correct the database through svnadmin recover of

So, I would like to know if there are some specific issues when
accessing the database through both servers at the same time ?

By the way, I could notice some access rights stuff that might be
related to my problem. All my repository is in a folder owned by
dev:devgroup, apache is running under the username apache:apache (but
devgroup is a secondary user group for apache). Apache created (the
first time only, not during further tests) in my folder some log file
with user apache:apache, and I had to change the owner of those files
manually before svnadmin recover could work.

Last question : Is adding per directory access rights while using
svnserve high on the priority list for subversion evolutions ?
