I don't see, how it is related. There is nothing to do with the repository path
in that particular case. We have a combination of LocationMatch, mod_dav and

The first one is responsible to match the location, which was requested from
the server with the given configuration block. And the result of it is binary -
either 'yes' or 'no'. and if it is 'yes' - we have very exact path(local part
of the URI) that did match it! If it matched something, that wasn't aimed to -
well, blame the writer of the regex.

But, in any case, as soon as the block matched - we should have exact URI which
should be passed to the mod_dav instead of cryptic regular expression. I'm not
sure how easy is to implement it, but at least, that what I'd expect, comparing
with the behavior in case of Location.

There is absolutely nothing that makes this situation specific to the
mod_dav_svn. It just consumes what mod_dav passed to it, and in this situation
mod_dav passes garbage.
