      Description

      When a file has been renamed (svn mv) in one WC, trying to `svn up' a different
      WC of the same leads the client to try an OPTIONS for the repository root.  When
      this happens in a repository where the root is protected through authz (for
      example, a repository where each user can see only their own directory) the
      client aborts when it receives "403 Forbidden".
      
      This was raised on the mailing list in a thread labeled "Issues with an
      authz-protected repository", see:
      http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1065&dsMessageId=1131969
      
      See that post for a description for how to reproduce the problem.
      
      It might be related to Issue 3242, but for us it happens for an `svn mv' and
      the problem manifests itself through a bad OPTIONS rather than a PROPFIND.  In
      the mentioned thread Mark Phippard said that
        In 1.5 it was changed so that it "anchors" the session at the common parent
        ...
      and this might be what happens in our case too -- we started to get this
      problem in 1.5.x, not before.
      
      (Also, I used `libsvn_ra_neon' for the component field above, but only because
      Stefan Sperling mentioned on the mailing list that this is where the code that
      performs the offending query lives.  I don't know more than that.)
