get served by apache and it returns a 500 internal server error instead.

James, I notice you haven't received many replies to your question, which I imagine is because
you've told us "I have two files that are behaving differently but there is nothing different
about them" which doesn't give us much to go on. Clearly there has to be a difference somewhere,
and since you're in front of the computer and not us, you'll have to figure out what it is.
You already think you've ruled out everything, so start over and rule out nothing; re-check
everything. Investigate contents of files, Subversion properties, permissions, ownership,
security context (if using SELinux). Investigate permissions and ownership of all parent directories.
Double-check everything about the Apache configuration. And check the Apache access and error
logs for more clues. Good luck.
