Re: Subversion reinstall

(Note, top-posting because this conf is really long!) Well I am not
apache/subversion expert and can only point to a couple of things to
look at more closely. Firstly, I would really check the <VirtualHost>
directive that deals with subversion...perhaps there is an issue there
like apache is grabbing the settings from there correctly for the web
browsing, but it is also looking there for the svn DAV requests.

Also, make sure that the dav_svn_module is loaded...of course I guess
you wouldn't be able to browse the repo if it wasn't. Hum, I believe
you have reached the limit of my knowledge!
