DAV:cannot-modify-version-controlled-content

Hi there, I'm running subversion 1.2 rc4 and trying to operate WebDav on
Apache 2.0.54 and need a fresh pair of eyes to help me out!

I can attach via DAB to my repository via IE using a Windows web folder
on a Win 2k machine and copy stuff from it but whenever I try to add or
replace anything on the box, I just keep getting either:

[Fri May 27 17:40:26 2005] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (2)No such file or
directory: <DAV:cannot-modify-checked-in-parent> [409, #0]
[Fri May 27 17:40:26 2005] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (2)No such file or
directory: <DAV:cannot-modify-checked-in-parent> [409, #0]

or sometimes even
[Fri May 27 18:14:10 2005] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (2)No such file or
directory: <DAV:cannot-modify-version-controlled-content> [409, #0]
[Fri May 27 18:14:10 2005] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (84)Invalid or
incomplete multibyte or wide character:
<DAV:cannot-modify-version-controlled-content> [409, #0]

I'm almost certain my permissions on the actual repository folders are
okay, the owner and group are the same as the apache server and the
group can write to everything. I have the following in my httpd.conf
and I get the bog standard username password prompt for basic
authentication which I pass through:

DavLockDB var/dav_lock_db
<Location /svn/repos>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /usr/local/svn/repos
   # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
   <LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS POST LOCK UNLOCK PROPFIND PROPPATCH
COPY MOVE MKCOL>
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion Repository"
   AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/passwd/passwords
  # only authenticated users may access the repository
  Require valid-user
   </LimitExcept>
</Location>

Any ideas would be most welcome!
