Yes, that is 1.0.0. It's installed since yesterday, with TortoiseSVN as the
client (though I have tried the command-line applications as well, same
thing as expected). Tried running a daemon again, and it worked fine. So
there's no incompatibility there...

Why didn't I think of that? Explains a lot, here's the output:

Type '--inetd --help' for usage.
                                You must specify one of -d, -i, -t or -X.
-i is already specified, -d is wrong, -X is wrong, so that leaves -t. And
guess what? That was it! :) The server now responds nicely, and all works
fine. Thanks for the telnet tip!
I do think this is the hard way to find out. Nowhere could I find -t
mentioned as being necessary, not even in the --help output. I initially
thought it was related to SSH. Then again, I might've missed something.
Either way, it's fixed, and that's what counts...
