They need to be visible in the same browser window.

Yes. The repository browser will show the repository root as the top
node. You can't navigate up above that point. If you cannot find all
the folders you need below that point then they are not in the same
repository. The fact that they all start with svn://serverx simply
means that they are accessed using the same server, but one server can
serve many repositories.
