I've usually used threaded svnserve's with the --foreground switch,
i.e. something like:

svnserve --foreground -T --listen-host localhost -r ~/local/svnrepo

As you've found, -X is largely useless for debugging with a svn client
for many commands, it's more useful if you're just typing raw commands
in via telnet or something, but that's a pain in the ass for most
