Sorry about that. I've now configured my editor to show a line at the 80

Hope it's done now.

There's no GetProcAddressA and no GetProcAddressW - just GetProcAddress
which takes a narrow char string. At least in the SDK I'm using here.

That would require a change to the crashreporter dll itself.
Also, I don't quite see the point: if svnserve crashes, it won't restart
automatically. So having a dialog open which shows info about the crash
won't hurt?

Changed it to svn_CrashRpt.dll.

Patch attached.
