I think your link is pointing to the version 1.1 but it shows me this

"Every time I try to access my repository, my Subversion client just
hangs."

which is not the problem I encoutered. The link you posted is not
regarding svnserve and it referres to problem of hanging. My problem was
that most of the time there was delay before svnserve started processing the
request. This delay was not deterministic and each time the request was
made, it lasted different number of seconds up to several minutes or
just total hang up (maybe I was just not patient enough:). Therefore
the problem you pointed to is different.

Rather than troubleshooting I was thinking about the notice in the form of bubble same as you can find in individual sections
stating some good practice, justification or warning. Similar warning bubble
should be included in the part about svn authentification pointing to the
solution (located maybe in the troubleshooting section). (see for example "svnserver, a custom server" -> "servers and
permissions" bubble)
