I had exactly the same problem. Everything worked fine except committing
data to the master. Problem has nothing to do with Subversion, but with
Apache2. You need to enable proxy and proxy_http modules. Perhaps also the
rewrite module.

The following code is equivalent to "SVNMasterURI http://master/svn", and
should also work:

  RewriteEngine on
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !^GET$
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://master%{REQUEST_URI} [P]
  ProxyPassReverse http://master/svn

I tried it and I got several errors on Apache2 logs that made me install the
modules. Now it works like a charm. ;)
