Propfind failed on repository root

A while ago I had subversion set up and working fine at
https://myserver.com/svn/repos/ i decided to change this to
https://myserver.com/svn/ just to make it look nicer... everything
seemed to be running fine... I could update and commit quite happily
and also checkout subdirectories e.g.
https://myserver.com/svn/project1/

However I no longer seem to be able to checkout the root subversion
directory, meaning I cant add any more projects at the moment...

DrEvil backup # svn co https://myserver.com/svn/
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn': 405 Method Not Allowed (https://myserver.com)

if i view the url in my browser I can see the repository fine however
I get this error message if i try to check out the root or try to view
anything in tortoisesvn's repository browser...

my user info is stored in /var/svn/conf/svnusers and my repository is
in /var/svn/repos...

the /var/svn/ directory is recursively owned by apache:apache with
permissions 770

this is an ls -l of /var/svn/
DrEvil svn # ls -l
total 0
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 72 Jul 3 2004 conf
drwxrwx--- 7 apache apache 224 Jul 3 2004 repos

and an ls -l of /var/svn/repos/
DrEvil repos # ls -l
total 11
-rwxrwx--- 1 apache apache 376 Jul 3 2004 README.txt
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 80 Jul 3 2004 conf
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 112 Jul 3 2004 dav
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 3072 Feb 8 22:19 db
-rwxrwx--- 1 apache apache 2 Jul 3 2004 format
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 232 Jul 3 2004 hooks
drwxrwx--- 2 apache apache 104 Jul 3 2004 locks

this is in my apache config file
<IfDefine SVN>
        <IfModule !mod_dav_svn.c>
                LoadModule dav_svn_module extramodules/mod_dav_svn.so
        </IfModule>
        <Location /svn/>
                DAV svn
                SVNPath /var/svn/repos/
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "Subversion repository"
                AuthUserFile /var/svn/conf/svnusers
                Require valid-user
        </Location>
</IfDefine>

nothing is printed to apache's ssl_error_log but the following is
printed to apache's ssl_access_log...
63.111.22.74 - - [08/Feb/2005:11:14:07 +0000] "PROPFIND /svn HTTP/1.1" 405 381

Does anyone know how to fix my problem???

Thanks in advance!
