Yes, this is to be expected. It's what happens when a DAV client
does a LOCK on a nonexistent path as a way of "reserving" the
filename. Many clients do this, including MSWord. The basic pattern
is: LOCK nonexistent path, PUT path.

The latest WebDAV spec says that when a LOCK comes in on a
nonexistent path, the server should react by creating a locked, 0-
byte file. That explains the initial "add" commit that you see.
Then when the server follows up with a PUT, you get the "modify" commit.
