WebDav with Windows XP

Hello all,

I have a little problem.

I use the PEAR component HTTP_WebDAV_Server to provide webdav access
to a virtual file system on my server. With NetDrive or WebDrive
everything works fine. Only Windows XP can't connect.

When I test the implementation locally on my development environment,
I recognized the following:

The url of the webdav-access is: http://localhost/calimero.cms/src/webdav.php.
With Netdrive I can connect with this url. A look into the access.log
of the server says: - - [04/May/2007:18:42:53 +0200] "OPTIONS /calimero.cms/src/
webdav.php HTTP/1.1" 200 - - - [04/May/2007:18:42:54 +0200] "PROPFIND /calimero.cms/src/
webdav.php/ HTTP/1.1" 401 -

Not really suprising so far. But when I try to connect to this URL
with Windows XP, it fails. A look into the access.log of the webserver
then says: - - [04/May/2007:18:37:16 +0200] "PROPFIND /calimero.cms/
HTTP/1.1" 405 1043

Windows XP does not use the orginal URL. It cuts of a lot of stuff at
the end! Why? What can I do against that?

Best regards,
