Mine was a stupid mistake. In my httpd.conf, I had:

<Location /estsvn>

when I should have had:

<Location /svn>

because my import command was:

svn import testqadb

I could have changed the import command but I wanted all my svn commands
to use 'svn' instead of 'estsvn'.

This probably doesn't help you because you probably have your Location
in your httpd.conf setup correctly. However, in my searches on the
internet, I have found the main causes of the PROPFIND error is due to
a mismatch in svn command and the Location in httpd.conf or a
permissions problem. Now I'll ask the obvious. Did you create your
repository with svnadmin create? Is your repository read/writeable by
apache? On my server, apache runs as nobody. If this doesn't help, post
your svn command along with output, relevant portions of your
httpd.conf and maybe even an 'ls -ld' of your repository directory so
we can see what the permissions are set to.

Please post your solution just in case I run into this again.
