Bug 1145 seems to have been fixed in revisions 6052 and 6055 in May
2003. It also indicates it only applies to tunnel mode, which I think
means tunneling through SSH, which you've said works for you. You're
only having problems with non-tunneling mode, which that bug does not
talk about.

How are you starting the svnserve process? Note that when using the
svn+ssh protocol, you do not start svnserve yourself, but svn starts
it for you when your connection opens, and stops it when the
connection closes. With the svn protocol, on the other hand, you must
have an svnserve daemon already started, and running all the time.
