Sure, but I'm totally unfamiliar with language options -- do I just
change some regional settings or do I need to install a language pack
or what?

I don't believe that has changed at all, but I haven't tried or tested
anything like that. It is basically only an issue with the file://
protocol, right? Since server based installations can just 'recover'
the repository to get rid of the old shared memory files?

So the --username and --password parms on the commandline are ignored
if you have SSPI on? That does sound like a problem in Subversion's
auth code. Is there an issue filed?
