I'm don't use Apache enough to call myself an expert, but my experience
has been that anytime I use the <Location> directive I will never need
an Alias. The <Location> directive is the only thing that is necessary
here because Subversion through Apache is not a true physical filesystem
access method. It is creating more of a web service via the mod_dav_svn

For more info on the specifics of <Directory> and <Location> tags see

I would recommend dropping the mod-alias section of your config, and
move all the <Directory> configuration options to the <Location> tag.
The only thing that is not necessary is the -FollowSymLinks Option as
that is not supported in <Location> directives. But you are already
disabling it anyway...
