Could not open the lock database - Apache WebDAV setup

I configured a WebDAV server using Apache. Here is my configuration:
DAVLockDB /var/www/DAVLock.db
<Location /majid>
    AllowOverride None
    Options +Indexes
    DAV On     
    AuthName Authentication     
    AuthType Basic     
        Require user majid
Alias /majid /var/www/dav/majid

`/var/www/DAVLock.db` is owned by apache user and group. I can access WebDAV share via browser.
I have configured a WebFolder in Windows XP SP3. But I can't create file and folders. `error_log` file says:
[Tue Oct 11 17:05:12 2011] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/dav/majid/New Folder 
[Tue Oct 11 17:05:12 2011] [error] [client] The locks could not be queried for verification against a possible "If:" header.  [500, #0] 
[Tue Oct 11 17:05:12 2011] [error] [client] Could not open the lock database.  [500, #400] [Tue Oct 11 17:05:12 2011] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: Could not open property database.  [500, #1]

Can anyone help? Another question is: Do we need `Options +Indexes` for WebDAV clients to list files and folders or it is only for web access using browser?

I removed this line:
DAVLockDB /var/www/DAVLock.db

and use the default configuration of Apache:
<IfModule mod_dav_fs.c>     # Location of the WebDAV lock database.     DAVLockDB /var/lib/dav/lockdb </IfModule>

It is now working perfectly. But I don't know the reason yet.

What are the permissions of /var/www/dav/ and /var/www/dav/majid ?
