At which level in this url is your repository located?

Can you quote the relevant porting from your apache config? (Most likely the
<Location> block).

My guess is that your repository is located on the root of the webserver and
this can give some issues if not configured correctly. (Sometimes request
are handled via mod_dav and sometimes via the other handlers). As /!svn is
mapped on that root url, it has to get back in mod_dav or you get all kinds
of strange errors.

If you are just setting up your server I would recommend setting it up with
a 'svn/' or 'repos/' prefix via a location tag as shown in most examples, as
that makes the installation easier and better maintainable if some unrelated
apache settings change.
