This should be the answer: your configuration files are in the same
directory as your the executable. Except if you have placed them *manually*
into your %APPDATA%\Subversion directory (so APPDATA files override the
system wide if necessary)

But using that registry key directly is a bad hack too :-) (Or is that key
published in the reference?) Microsoft recommends the SHGetFolderPath API
function.
