Thanks for the tip - I checked into it but found I am using backslashes in
my SVNParentPath directive:

<Location /CommonServices>
# Custom error
ErrorDocument 401 /401.html
# Where is the repository
 DAV svn
 SVNParentPath E:\products\CommonServices
 SVNAutoversioning on

# How we authenticate
 AuthType SSPI
 AuthName "Subversion repositories"
 SSPIAuth On
 SSPIAuthoritative On
 SSPIDomain ads.mckinsey.com
 SSPIOfferBasic On

# Who can enter
 Require valid-user

I noticed this in 1.1.x and determined that it was caused, in my setup,
by the way that I specified the SVNParentPath directive in httpd.conf.
If I used forward or back slashes, that's what was passed to the hook

I imagine that the way the "root" option of svnserve is specified has
a similar result.

Since I only use the hook script ".bat" file to call a Perl script,
any mixed slashes are easily dealt with. I consider ".bat" files to
be fasteners - not working parts.
