svnserve and inetd: malformed network data

I've been playing around with SVN a bit on my Debian system, and got it
running in daemon mode just fine. Now I want to run it at startup, and
instead of writing an init script I decided to try the inetd approach first.
I added the following lines to inetd.conf:

#:SVN: SubVersion
3690 stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/svnserve --inetd --root
3691 stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/svnserve --inetd --root

Running two instances: one for a public server and one for private projects.
The root directories each contain a "test" directory which was created as a
repository. Not yet sure if SVN can list all repositories on a server, which
is why I run two instances to prevent that... but that's not the issue, at
least this works for the daemon. I was able to import, checkout, everything.
Now in inetd mode I'm getting a "Malformed network data" error when trying
anything. The server and client both have the same SVN version...

And while I'm at it: is inetd mode preferable over a daemon or not?

Thanks in advance,

- Mark
