I deleted $APPDATA\Subversion and ran 'svn --version' to recreate it and now
the correct files show up.

F:\ty2\data>svn --version
svn, version 0.25.0 (r6433)
   compiled Jul 10 2003, 22:05:10

TortoiseSVN is 0.14.0 build 38, built using 0.25.0.

So if the servers file does not exist but the $APPDATA\Subversion directory
does, svn does not create the servers file?

Being a Linux newbie, how does one disable deflate on a location? The
mod_deflate.so module is not being loaded and the text 'deflate' does not
appear in httpd.conf anywhere. Can deflate be compiled into httpd? If so,
how do we find out if it is? I installed httpd 2.0.47 from the
summersoft.fay.ar.us site.

It is 0.25.0 as shown above. I'm giving it another go on a new repository
with a fresh servers file in $APPDATA.
