repository can be browsed remotely but can't be checked out, 400 bad request

Hello, please help me see what might be the reason that
caused this 400 error!

  I've just configured an Apache-Subversion server, and created
a repository under the directory /var/www/svn/repos/.

  Problem is that I can browse the repository files using Firefox,

  but can't checkout (or import) files from the repository using
subclipse (using file:// URL is OK), Eclipse console replied:

    RA layer request failed
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (400 Bad Request) in
response to PROPFIND request for '/repos/!svn/vcc/default'

    Authorization failed
svn: OPTIONS of '':
authorization failed (

  Configuration are:
  httpd-2.2.6-3(Fedora 8) with loaded modules including
mod_dav, mod_dav_svn
  access to /var/www/svn/repos/ is apache:apache,
755(for /var/www/svn/, it's root:root)
  server authentication is based on htpasswd, users are
successfully authenticated because no 'invalid user' hints,
  firewall and selinux disabled during testing
  also no proxy setup for server

  SVN apache directives:
<Location /repos>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /var/www/svn/repos/
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "SVN Repository"
    AuthUserFile /var/www/svn/repos/conf/htpasswd
    Required valid-user

    I guess it's the apache configuration, but I've setup the
same way once before, and I think browsing OK means
checking out OK. Thanks in advance!
