"OPTIONS request failed" on commit

We temporarily setup svnserve for our new Subversion server (and it works :-),
and now are trying to setup use through Apache. We have it partially working
from remote (e.g. authentication, authorization, svn co, browser traversing),
but cannot commit.

svn, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
   compiled Apr 5 2005, 05:18:28


We've been pulling our hair out Googling and searching this list's archives etc.
(every thread starts to answer something, but then ends :-( I know there is
some config error on our part. So far we have not determined what it is!

Our best guess so far is there is/are another thing to config in httpd.conf, or
something with our firewall/forwarding. For starters, we understand that the
web-dav OPTIONS command is not working, but not sure how to get
further/troubleshoot and diagnose why.

The core issue to solve is this error:

$ svn commit -m "the msg"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: OPTIONS request failed on '/svn/mndoc'
svn: The OPTIONS request returned invalid XML in the response: XML parse error
at line 1: no element found (/svn/mndoc)

This is the section added to http.conf
<IfModule mod_dav_svn.c>
    <Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /home/subversion/repos

        #access control policy
        AuthzSVNAccessFile /home/subversion/conf/authorization-apache

        #how to authenticate
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Subversion Repository"
        AuthUserFile /home/subversion/conf/authentication-apache

        #only authenticated users can access
        Require valid-user

Anyone have advice for us please?!
