E195019: Redirect cycle detected for URL

While trying to set up an Ubuntu Server 16.04-3 LTS with Subversion to act as a mirror
for our main VisualSVN server running on Windows Server 2016 I have run into a very
strange problem.

I have set up svn in the normal way and then I also set up a self-signed certificate
so I could use https for access before I opened the firewall port towards the Ubuntu
server (port 443 opened but not 80).
I thought I was all done when I could use a browser (both Chrome and FireFox tested)
to connect to the first repository and view it in the browser.

But then I tested with the svn client on the command line and this happened (I have
faked the real domain name):

D:\>svn list https://home.mydomain.com/svn/bosse
Error validating server certificate for 'https://home.mydomain.com:443':
 - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
Certificate information:
 - Hostname: home.mydomain.com
 - Valid: from Mar 25 00:52:45 2018 GMT until Mar 22 00:52:45 2028 GMT
 - Issuer: home.mydomain.com, IT, Somecompany Inc, Jarfalla, Stockholm, SE(bo.berglund_at_mydomain.com)
 - Fingerprint: 1C:84:47:97:89:7E:48:3B:C9:08:C0:F5:65:E8:01:B0:7F:DD:DB:21
(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently? p
Authentication realm: <https://home.mydomain.com:443> Subversion Repository
Username: bosse
Password for 'bosse': *********
Redirecting to URL 'https://home.mydomain.com/svn/bosse':
Redirecting to URL 'https://home.mydomain.com/svn/bosse':
svn: E195019: Redirect cycle detected for URL 'https://home.mydomain.com/svn/bosse'

So the situation is like this:
1) Using a web browser everything looks quite normal.
2) Using the svn client throws up error E195019

I am not really versed in Apache configuration files so I would appreciate if someone could say
what further information I need to supply in order to get to a solution.

The installed versions of svn are as follows:
Ubuntu Server 16.04: 1.9.3 (r1718519) (this was the latest version available for Ubuntu)
My laptop Win7 x64: 1.9.7 (r1800392)
Apache2 on Ubuntu is whatever version was available when I installed a few weeks back.

Best Regards,

Bo Berglund
