Subversion book 301 error [PATCH]

I think the appendix B entry on the 301 error is incomplete. I had no
common paths in the  httpd.conf, yet I got the error. The entry in the
SVN book did point me in the right direction though.

The reason was that there was a real subdirectory under the htdocs
root with the same name as the virtual one, so the cause was not
entirely within httpd.conf.

Suggested change:

<para>It means your httpd.conf is misconfigured or a conflict between
real and virtual paths.  Usually this error happens when you've
defined the Subversion virtual <quote>location</quote> to exist within
two different scopes at the same time or that the virtual one
conflicts with a real one.</para>
