Re: WHEN will Apache release a fix?

I don't want to say that you should abandon Apache for Subversion; I
use (under Mac OS X) it and like it. But since it seems to be
problematic under Windows at the moment, I can suggest some ways to
work around it:

You could use svn+ssh protocol, which uses the standard ssh port 22,
which is secure and probably already open in your corporate firewall?

What do they do? Why do they require that the repository also be
served via Apache?

Well, you can browse it, but you need a Subversion client, which a
web browser is not. However, there are other web-based repository
viewers, such as ViewVC, WebSVN and Trac which will still work even
if the repository is not served via Apache.
