RE: Denial of service using SVNServe on WinXp

I tried it on my laptop, and it got to 4800 before I got tired of it.
However, there isn't anything in the logs of the computer that gives the
error.

Beyond that, can you suggest a reason why sometimes (on multiply computers),
the repository would stop responding, causing builds failures?

Agreed.

Two suggestions:

1) Try this on another machine, preferably a different model/manufacturer.

2) Check your system event log; see if you're seeing any
SMART/network/system/etc. type errors. Probably not, but you never know.
