Thanks; that sounds promising. I wonder why I haven't been bothered
by this before?

Just for the record, I've also today seen the following errors from

svnsync: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repo'
svnsync: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem


svnsync: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repo'
svnsync: Can't open file 'D:\Repositories\repo\db\current': The system cannot find the file specified.

Presumably they're manifestations of the same underlying problem? They
seem very odd though.
