This isn't a bug, it's a feature.  A bad one, likely, as there's no easy way
to turn it off. ;-)  I believe that if you turn off "Access Contents
Information" permission for anonymous on the root folder, a WebDAV directory
listing can't be retrieved.  This, however, likely breaks lots of things
that have nothing to do with WebDAV.

The WebDAV (and XMLRPC) stuff either needs to be decomposed to run on its
own port (and only that port) or more explicit permissions need to be
associated with WebDAV/XMLRPC operations if we take for granted that being
able to browse the root folder structure is a bad thing.
