Retrieving WebDAV properties/metadata

From: Eric Nicholson <enicholson_at_gmail.com>

I use a standard WebDAV client against a subversion repository, and I've
noticed that some of the DAV properties that it generates are stored (with
proppatch) but are never retrieved. I can get the properties back with
TortoiseSVN using the "properties" function which seems especially strange.

Has anyone else seen this? I've included a couple WireShark traces below of
the particular propfind commands

First some background info:
Subversion Server: 1.4.2 & 1.4.3
OS: Windows 2000 Server & Windows Server 2003
Apache: 2.0.58
"Other" WebDav Client: WebDrive 7.21

Here's the WebDrive trace, note that "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found" is returned
for a number of properties including the one I really want,
"srt_modifiedtime":

Next, the TortoiseSVN trace. Note that it's reading from an entirely
different directory that I believe points straight to the revision. Also
it's asking for "allprop" rather than the properties by name.

I also tried with the commandline SVN client, and unsurprisingly the results
were very similar to Tortoise...

Anybody have any idea why I'm not getting my metadata back?

Thanks!
