That looks correct to me. As far as I can tell it should work.

You may want to define a document root for this vhost, so that any
global document root you've defined doesn't interfere. Set it to an
empty directory, like:

DocumentRoot /var/empty

assuming /var/empty is an empty directory. Or make a new empty
directory somewhere to serve as a document root for this vhost. You
may want to put things in it later, like a favicon or an xslt
transform for the web view.

I don't know why this is happening. If you don't have a proxy server
interfering on this network, and you are certain that the username
and password you are using is correct, then it should be working.
Maybe someone else will see the problem.

The syntax looks correct to me. (Well, if it weren't, Apache would
not start, and would instead print a syntax error.) I think you can
put the directives anywhere you like. If you already have a place
where you usually put vhost configurations, then it probably makes
sense to put the Subversion virtual host there as well.
