Firedaemon is like unix inetd, right? It launches svnserve only when a
connection comes in? In which case, you *don't* want to use the -d
switch with svnserve. That causes the process to detatch into the

I suspect what's going on is that firedaemon then loses track of the
process, thinks it's "dead" and then forcibly kills the process...
