Because they have a rather strict policy regarding the installing of
Suse-RPMs here. They only want to rely on the "official" Suse-RPMs
and subversion-1.1.3-10 was the latest package available.

I also tested it with subversion-1.2.1 on another only-test-system,
but it showed up the same problem, and i was instructed to get it
to work with the "official" RPMs.

The guy from Tortoise said, he remembered a problem with "blocking/
hanging" svnserve-processes but couldn't remember exactly. Can you
approve or deny that ?
