I think this is being caused by your LocationMatch. Every request is going to
think that the server is rooted at the path you're requesting. LocationMatch
can be used but you have to be really careful about it and in your particular
case I don't think you need it at all.

I also don't understand why you're using a Limit block around the require
directive. That block is missing the MOVE, LOCK and UNLOCK methods. Assuming
that you don't have "SVNAutoversioning on" turned on somewhere else you can't
really do anything useful with those being open to anonymous users (MOVE
without auto-versioning requires a transaction/activity which would require a
POST or MKACTIVITY in advance and LOCK/UNLOCK are not allowed for anonymous
users). So I suspect you really just want all actions against the repository
to require the user. So just removing the Limit blocks and put "Require user
svnuser" directly inside the Location block.

Not sure what the AuthLDAPURL is doing in there with not value either.

With those three things I suspect that your configuration should look like this:
<Location /repos/endeca/pipeline>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /var/repos
  SVNPathAuthz off
  AuthBasicProvider file
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "SVN Login"
  AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/svnuser_local
  Require user svnuser

What were you doing when you got this error? Do you have the error from the
client, it should be returning an error as well.

Even if the above resolves your problem I'd be interested in the above so that
we can improve the error message you're getting in the future.

I'd also encourage you to upgrade the server to a newer version than 1.8.0,
we've fixed some bugs in the meantime.
