I've seen this behaviour with eclipse and SVN (which uses WebDAV too).
Just a simple browse of the source tree in ecplipse results in
hundreds of requests. This is actually not a bug, but just a
consequence of the protocol. Every file property a client wants to
know results in a GET...
Basically, if you build an apache webdav server you should expect lots
of requests.
