I thinnk I have a better handle of the problem. The apache2 error log says:

[Tue Sep 12 07:23:52 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (20014)Error
string not specified yet: Expected format '3' of repository; found
format '5'
[Tue Sep 12 07:23:52 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Could not fetch
resource information. [500, #0]
[Tue Sep 12 07:23:52 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Could not open
the requested SVN filesystem [500, #165005]
[Tue Sep 12 07:23:52 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Could not open
the requested SVN filesystem [500, #165005]

This is the clue. My mod_dav_svn is using a different libsvn_fs than
what was used to create the repository in the install process. So I
will have to rebuild mod_dav_svn with the same libsvn_fs.
