I'm sorry I know nothing about the problem you are having, but I
wanted to point out that maybe you should take more care in choosing
your subject. (This is an excellent resource:
http://www.useit.com/alertbox/980906.html)

Writing an inflammatory subject regarding the worthiness of a software
product to its mailing list, many of whose members have been using the
product without problems, will not get your question answered very
quickly. Maybe a more informative subject like "LocationMatch with
Apache and SVN not working" would get people looking at the problem
instead of rising their blood pressure.

Thanks,
Patrick
