This is a known Sharepoint bug. It does not properly encode the href-element.
Instead of
<D:href> Documents/WMS</D:href>
it must be
The space character must be percent-encoded according to the specs.

To work around this bug in davfs2 would require to duplicate a lot of code from the Neon library, so I won't do.

If you are willing to patch your Neon library there is a patch from another SharePoint user. See

You may also inform the maintainer of the server about the problem.
Another way to avoid the problem would be to not use file names with spaces.

I have managed to mount a sharepoint 2007 dav site using davfs.
Also I have mounted a jackrabbit dav server the same way.

However an 'ls' on the sharepoint site returns no repository files, whereas jackrabbit works like a charm :)

I have attached the xml returned by the PROPFIND for both cases.

Thank You
