Hi Curt,

SVNService is but one way, another is a product like Firedaemon.

Can you confirm it's running ok?

sc query svnservice

We ran SVNService as LocalSystem for several years
with no issues, FWIW now we run SVNService as LocalService
on a Windows 2003 server.

Also, another windows Subversion user - Dan Thompson,
has updated Magnus's original version of SVNService, so that
it performs a shut down more gracefully (it may have other fixes
but I forget what now), I can email you a copy of that update
if you like (includes sources).

If all else fails...give firedaemon.com a shot.
