Yes, fixed.  My test script got further, but then hit the following bug

PROPFIND /jrd/foo.html HTTP/1.1

1) I think this is a valid request.  (I could be wrong).  Why does
mod_webdav reject it?

2) If it does indeed think it's an invalid request, it should return status
400, not 207 Multistatus, because the error applies to the entire request
as a whole, not to the status of some individual resource within a set.
