Listing 'bug' with mod_dav_svn and regex-location

Hello list,

I was playing around with mod_dav_svn in apache (2.2), and it suddenly
gave a 403 error.
I have a VirtualHost with DAV svn enabled in /, and I wanted to use

Config snippet:
<VirtualHost *:80>
    <Directory /path/to/>
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
    Alias /svnindex.xsl /path/to/svnindex.xsl
    <Location ~ "^(?!/svnindex)">
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /svnrepos/path
        SVNListParentPath on
        SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Subversion repositories"
        AuthUserFile /svnrepos/path/passwd
        require valid-user

Well, this works fine when accessing http://vhost/repository/* or
However, if I go to http://vhost/ I get a 403 error, with in my error-log:
[Tue Jun 17 22:08:34 2008] [error] [client IP] Could not fetch resource
information. [403, #0]
[Tue Jun 17 22:08:34 2008] [error] [client IP] (35)Resource temporarily
unavailable: The URI does not contain the name of a repository. [403,

When I use <Location /> and comment SVNIndexXSLT I can normally access

I don't think the pcre in the Location should cause a 403 error, so I
assume it is an SVN bug.

(Yes, I run 1.4.6)
