No, FireDaemon is a generic service that runs other processes (like the
srvany.exe that comes in the resource kit). It's a generic version of
the svnservice.exe tool that has been mentioned in this thread already.

It's a true service that has as it's sole purpose in life to start some
other process (which isn't a service) when it's started. When it's
stopped, it stops that process. It makes any program act like a service.

Given that, you may still be correct that passing the -d parameter may
cause problems, for the reasons you state above.

I'd guess that using the svnservice.exe tool is probably a better
choice, because the author of that tool has already worked out how to
run svnserve correctly. Get it at http://dark.clansoft.dk/~mbn/svnservice/
