There are several possible issues when trying to use "<Location />" to serve repositories. Using a different location like "<Location /repos>" works around these. If you don't want to do that, then you'll have to tackle the issues. For example, some clients will request paths that don't exist, like /favicon.ico and /robots.txt. What happens when they do? Does it produce a lot of errors, such as the ones you see above? You may want to install Alias directives for each of these possible URLs and do something better with them, either redirect them to actual files, or make them generate a more immediate error that would not clog your logs.

The error you've shown above says that someone or something is trying to access a repository called "error". Presumably you do not have a repository by that name. Do you perhaps have a global rule that is redirecting errors to such a URL? If so, make that rule not apply to this virtual host.
