See the following mail thread about that subject:
http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgId=256035

The error occurs since Win98 doesn't have a "logged in" user
and so apr can't get the UID (User ID).
I sent a patch which would make Subversion ask for a username
instead, but Branko thinks that Subversion should error out instead.

You must specify a --username for each and every command you
execute. Some subversion clients don't support this so you're
stuck with the command line client.
