Cannot use "/svn/" for location of SVNParentPath

SVNParentPath will not work if my Location is '/svn/'. Other names are OK.

I have a some repositories under /home/svn/docrepos. My Location
statement is:

<Location /svn/>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /home/svn/docrepos

When I try to gain access using the URL "http://<server>/svn/myproduct",
I get the "Could not open the requested SVN filesystem" error. The
Apache error log includes "Can't open file
'/home/svn/docrepos/svn/format'.." (Surely the correct path would be

If I change the Location to something else, '/repos/' for example, I
have no problem accessing my repository with the URL
"http://<server>/repos/myproduct". This is as expected and tells me my
configuration is correct. But all I changed was a name. Is there
something special about the name "svn"? There is no web content with
that name to cause a conflict.

Even more strange, I can now also access my repository using the URL
"http://<server>/svn/myproduct". That makes no sense at all! There is
nothing to link that location with the repository!

Any idea what is going on here?
