client denied error with 'svn ls -v'

I get the following error when using the 'svn ls -v':


Error * REPORT request failed on
'http://www.myrepo.org/repos/myproject/trunk/src/' REPORT of


The Apache error log reports the following:

[Wed Oct 18 14:32:28 2006] [error] [client] client denied by
server configuration: proxy:http://www.myrepo.org/repos/myproject/trunk/src/


The Apache access log reports the following: - - [18/Oct/2006:15:10:53 +0200] "REPORT

"SVN/1.4.0 (r21228) neon/0.25.5"

I first thought it was an error related to TSVN but with the help from other
users I came to the conclusion that something is wrong in my Apache
configuration, but I can not figure out what. I was unable to find a
solution for my problem, which I got after upgrading to version 1.4.0.
Subversion server + command line client has also been upgraded to version
1.4.0. I now switched down to version 1.3.2 for Apr compatibility reasons
but the problem is still there.


Below you will find my Apache virtual host setup.


I appreciate any help given.
