svnserve -- password-db variable for Windows

I'm running svnserve as a service under WinXP.

I'd like to use a common password file for all repositories, outside
the repositories, but I seem to be having a stupid day, and I can't
seem to get password-db right in svnserve.conf. Here are a couple of
examples and the corresponding error messages:

password-db = S:/SubVersionRoot/Common/conf/password.conf
svn: Can't open config file


password-db = /S:/SubVersionRoot/Common/conf/password.conf
svn: Can't open config file

I've searched the whole Book for clues, without success. I've tried
zillions of combinations of multiple leading slashes, backslashes,
escaping the :, quoting with ' and with ", even file://, to no avail.

//brent/SubVersionRoot... works OK, but I really don't want a
permanent network share on my repository.

../../Common/conf... also works, but I'd prefer to be able to move
the file right outside my repositories area, and a chain of parent
directory refs isn't very robust.

Anyone care to give me an idea?
