One machine is XP Home (my home machine), No antivirus,
running as Limited User. One machine is XP Pro with Symantec
AV. domain login, Power user (my work). One machine is XP
Embedded, no AV, running as Administrator (also at work).

I can reproduce the hang condition on all machines every
time I try.

The first time I noticed this I had accidentally mis-typed
the -real- server name. Since then I have been using
"svn://bogus.server" as a test case.
