Not familiar with Linux and MS Webfolders, but to all I have read on
SVN so far you should at least use Apache 2.0.47. Additionally it
might be worth to update SVN to a more current version, either .26
(latest Windows release) or .27 to avoid mixing your issue with the
change of the database schema or to go for the most current .29
(not yet available for Windows though).

Freedom quote:

     We who live in free market societies believe
     that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment,
     are created from the bottom up, not the government down.
     Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create,
     only when individuals are given a personal stake
     in deciding economic policies and benefiting from their success --
     only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic,
     progressive, and free. Trust the people.
     This is the one irrefutable lesson of the entire postwar period
     contradicting the notion that rigid government controls
     are essential to economic development.
                -- Ronald Reagan, September 29, 1981
