Web browsers request the file "favicon.ico" at the root of any domain they visit.

You are apparently using SVNParentPath inside a "Location /" block, which means *all* web
requests, including those for favicon.ico, will be directed to Subversion to handle. SVNParentPath
tells Subversion to handle the first component of the URL as a repository name, so it tries
to access a repository called "favicon.ico"; because you don't have a repository by that name,
an error is written to the log. For these and various other reasons it is often recommended
not to use a "Location /" block for Subversion, but to use some subdirectory of the web space
instead (i.e. "Location /svn/").
