Subversion folders in web folders (WebDAV mod_dav_fs)

Since everything has been easy the last couple of days, I decided to try to
set up some subversion working folders in a WebDAV repository.

My subversion repository is accessed by http (under Apache2 2.052 on a
Windows 2003 server)
My WebDAV repository is hosted by a different Windows 2003 server under
Apache2 2.052.

I then, from a Windows XP(SP2) machine mapped the WebDAV repository to a
drive letter, so I could use it from the not so powerful command line in

I checked out a branch from the subversion repository into a directory
(initially empty) on my webdav drive. Running svn list and other read only
commands worked fine, and the working folders had the right contents and

I then modified a source file, added a new source file and executed the
sequence svn add..... and svn commit....... So far, so good.
Looking at the file I had modified, it turned out to be empty! The added
file was also not added by the commit.

Trying some more things, also after cleaning out the webdav folder and
starting from scratch, did not solve the problems. Using TortoiseSVN to see
if that would work better gave the same dismal results.

It looks to me as if there are some interactions here, or timing, or locking
that mess up.
A snippet from the Apache2 configuration is enclosed.

Does anybody have a clue?
