I must be losing my mind: I can't get a network trace (using WireShark)
for connections to localhost. I know I did that once before but now I
can't seem to get this to work.

Anyway:

Try a non-empty repository.
And I'm doing this on Windows, with svnserve running on the same machine
as the svn client.

Since I can't get a network trace, I'll try stepping through the code.
Be right back...
