[root at svn ~]# cat /selinux/enforce
[root at svn ~]#

So it's permissive mode (0).  I checked that before posting!  Thanks for 
your hint anyway.

As for updating subversion and mod_dav_svn, i have the latest versions 
from CentOS repositories and this server is only for internal use so i 
don't think i'll do it for now.  Thanks again for the hint.
