svn-0.14.2 on windows notes

Two tidbits for Windows users of subversion that I found useful are:

- Placing the libdb40.dll in Apache2/bin will let the Apache service
start without an error

(If this could be noted in the Windows install docs, it'd be great; I
had to dig through the list to find it)

- Also, already mentioned on the list was an error that d:\svn-repo is
not a SVN repo, even though it is. I resolved this by downloading
svn-0.14.1 and dropping it's mod_dav_svn.so file into Apache2/modules
instead of svn-0.14.2's version.

I could then browse the repo via a browser, but then when it came to
writing, I take it the mod_dav_svn.so from .1 doesn't talk well with a
2 repo, as I had to re-create the repo as .1 to be able to write via

Also, a quick question, I've got 0.14.1 running on WinXP (despite the
warnings about corrupted data, this is just a test installation until
[hopefully] SP1. I can read from another box via Web Folders, but cannot
write (though I can write if I use the svn client).

Has anyone successfully got WinXP Web Folders writing to a Subversion
repo regardless of the repo's platform?

I assumed it was possible as it's all WebDAV based. I'm thinking perhaps
Web Folders doesn't support DeltaV? (I haven't been able to find any
info from Microsoft that states one way or the other). Or is this only
broken with the WinXP-based repo?
