I've been thinking more about your arguments and since I agree with you,
I'd like to replace my previously proposed patch with this updated
version based on your idea.
Due to the behavior change it imposes, I'm not going to propose this for
backporting to 1.8 or 1.9, though.

Note that I kept the design to only disable Watson crash reports, unless
SVN_CMDLINE_USE_DIALOG_FOR_ABORT is set. The reasoning is as given in my
previous reply as in as far as I understand the design of that
environment-variable-setting, it should control whether an abort
produces a popup or not. Disabling the Watson crash reports would
prevent that popup (in certain cases) and therefore negate the setting.

[[[
Disable Watson crash reports upon abort()-calls on Windows, to allow
unattended test suite runs if an abort() is triggered.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/cmdline.c
  (svn_cmdline_init): disable Watson crash reports on abort unless
                      SVN_CMDLINE_USE_DIALOG_FOR_ABORT is set

* subversion/tests/svn_test_main.c
  (svn_test_main): the same

(Note: This patch was untested, since it's an obvious derivate of the
previous version of the patch.)
