Well, basically I just ran an svn tests over DAV:

   $ cd subversion/tests/clients/cmdline
   $ ./ 1 --url http://localhost

after having set up my Apache in the way recommended in the README in
that directory, of course.

However, the trick is to get your Apache to do early rejection of
requests.  Ben C-S was doing the same thing on his FreeBSD box (I have
RedHat here), but Apache ate all of the initial request before
responding with a 404.  In Ben's Ethereal capture, the 404 is not
interleaved with the client's request the way it is in mine.

Why the two behave differently, we don't know.  If you can't reproduce
this in your environment, let me know, and we'll figure something out.
