To respond to someone else's suggestion: if it works fine in a web
browser, then there cannot be a problem with SVNPath vs. SVNParentPath.

The difference between a web browser and the svn client is that a web
browser only sends GET requests whereas the svn client uses PROPFIND
requests. Are you going through a proxy? Many proxies don't know
about PROPFIND, REPORT and the other WebDAV methods svn needs to use.
You must configure the proxy to handle these methods as well.
Alternately, use HTTPS; since the proxy cannot read the HTTPS stream
because it is encrypted, it must pass all of it through unaltered.
