No, SVN should work on winXP OK. Couple of questions more,

1) What version of Subversion you are using?

2) Is the machine otherwise stable? Any flaky memory? Have you tried
   http://www.memtest86.com/ on it? Subversion could push quite a lot
   of stress to the I/O sub system and memory, so it is possible that it
   might trigger random memory errors on unstable HW.

BR, Jani
