If you check the list archives, you'll see that the thread immediately 
before yours, "Problems accessing GitHub's SVN-bridge with SVN 1.11", is 
about the exact same issue.

Unless I've completely misunderstood that thread, GitHub's custom 
re-implmentation of SVN's HTTP/DAV support is slightly buggy, in that it 
does not actually properly implement the underlying HTTP DAV protocol. 
It's only now become an issue due to Subversion getting stricter about 
checking for DAV protocol elements to better report certain errors.
