Trouble upgrading SVN repository server from Apache 2.0.55 to 2.2.0

I'm having trouble to access Subversion repositories after setting up
SVN 1.2.3 with Apache 2.2.0 on a Linux test server. No matter if I use
a SVN client on Linux/Windows or if I use a web browser, I always see
the following entries in the Apache error log when accessing the URL

  [notice] Apache/2.2.0 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.0 OpenSSL/0.9.7d DAV/2 SVN/1.2.3 configured -- resuming normal operations
  [error] Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0]
  [error] Could not open the root of the repository [500, #22]
  [error] Can't set position pointer in file '/var/svn/reps/foo/db/revs/1': Invalid argument [500, #22]

The file /var/svn/reps/foo/db/revs/1 exists and I am certain that the
repository structure is valid. Web search results suggested that this
problem might be caused by Apache not having the required permissions
on /var/svn/reps/foo/*, so I set permissions on all files and dirs
under /var/svn/reps/* to world writable. This had no effect.

My Apache config is as simple as it can be, so I don't suspect any
misconfiguration there:

  <Location /svn>
      DAV svn
      SVNParentPath /var/svn/reps

I have not seen these problems with Apache 2.0.5x, so perhaps Apache
2.2.0 handles things differently? Has anybody else tried upgrading SVN
servers to Apache 2.2.0 yet?
