SVNAutoversioning doesn't seem to be functioning

Setup information: Apache 2.0.52 running on CentOS 4 x64, Subversion 1.2
After setting up Apache and Subversion I wanted to test the autoversioning
capabilities so I moved on of my 1.1.x repositories over to the new machine
with the setup mentioned above. Then after reading this section I made sure
that the "SVNAutoversioning on" statement was in the svn location block in
my httpd.conf as mentioned on the site. To activate autoversioning, simply
set SVNAutoversioning on in your httpd.conf's Subversion Location block. Be
warned, however, that making your repository writable by generic DAV clients
may result in lots of small commits. A DAV client may seem to be saving a
file, but is in fact performing several write operations under the hood,
each resulting in a separate commit. Experiences may vary.

<Location /svn >
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /usr/local/svnroot
SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
SVNAutoversioning on
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Documentation Repository"
AuthLDAPURL ldap://<server name removed>:389/ou=Users,dc=ipov,dc=info
...etc

I know that Subversion 1.2 is working because I can now lock and unlock
files using TortoiseSVN. However using a basic webdav client such as windows
2000 webfolders doesn't allow me to edit the file straight from the share
point. I still have to copy the files to the local machine edit them and
copy them back. It was mentioned that windows webfolders would work on the
site. In informal tests, we've had success reading and writing to Subversion
repositories via Windows Web Folders, OS X Finder, Gnome Nautilus, KDE
Konqueror, and other DAV clients. I was wondering if anyone has also had
this problem and if anyone may know of a solution.
