Where do you think it needs another slash? The SVNParentPath
directive below looks ok to me.

That is weird; one would expect the paths to start with a single
slash. But it didn't think it would cause a problem for there to be
two slashes instead. The OS should filter out the extra slash. Still,
try removing the extra slashes from the file and see what happens.
