I run the tests in VMWare, single processor. I would say I always get
this error, since 1.3.0. However, if I manually start svnserve prior to
running the tests, I never get the error.

I do not understand how the test suite works in terms of starting svnserve
on Windows, but could it have something to do with that? Like is one
Python thread running svnserve and another the tests but they are in the
same process and that is triggering some problem?

Wildly speculating.
