I cannot see this behavior.
Instead, the command is blocked. I don't get the error message.

I don't think we should generally limit the number of svnserve
processes on a single computer to 1. What if I want to run multiple
instances of svnserve on the same server, each listening on a different
The behaviour you describe seems to be specific to Windows.
I cannot reproduce it on UNIX. When svnserve tries to bind to a port
that is already used by another instance of svnserve (or any service
for that matter), it exist with an error.
$ svnserve -d -r /tmp/repos
svnserve: Can't bind server socket: Address already in use
