Can't set position pointer in file '/u01/svn/repos/db/revs/1': Invalid argument

I am working on a Red Hat ES 3 server

I have installed (correctly ?) Subversion 1.3.0 using the INSTALL
document issued with the rpm.

I have installed Apache (HTTPD 2.2.0) with the changes to the httpd.conf

LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so


<Location /svn/repos>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /u01/svn/repos

I have created a repository

svnadmin create /u01/svn/repos

I have imported a number of files

 svn import /tmp/scripts file:///u01/svn/repos/scripts -m "initial

I can list the repository

 svn ls file:///u01/svn/repos

But when I do a

svn ls http://localhost/svn/repos I get
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repos'
svn: Can't set position pointer in file '/u01/svn/repos/db/revs/1':
Invalid argument

What am I doing wrong? I am logged on as user svn . All the /u01svn
directories have 777 permisions and svn:svn ownership.

Also how do I access this repository from any other computer on the
network. This includes Red Hat, Microsoft Windows XP and SUN Solaris
servers / PC's
