Error 1053 when starting svnserve as a service on WinXP

I installed the svnserve as a service, following the guide on
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.4.0/notes/windows-service.txt.
However, the service won't start, I get the following error message:
"Could not start the ... service on Local Computer
  Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control
request in a timely fashion."

I have Windows XP Pro SP2.
I have the latest updates to the .NET framework.
I tried to run it both as a Local System and as me (roaming profile)
svnserve works fine using the --daemon option.
I am at a university - can there be some security setting that prevents
me from running a service? If so, how can I check it?

Does someone have
  - the same problem?
  - any idea how to solve it?

Thanks a lot.

Regards,
Michal Kaut
