Heh - yes. I want to use the server for it's performance not it's
permanence - I'm doing repeated iterations of a scripted migration and
my desktop is not up to the challenge.

Already ahead of you - I've hit that one in the past (not with
Subversion though).

Permissions was one of the first things I checked and hence why I
tried to remove this as a suspicion by noting the permissions and the
user priveleges...

Interesting. Oh what a lovely beast the win32 isn't. I'm glad I
rarely end up having to use it directly.

Turned out (as seen in another post) that it is a known issue in the
Apache 2.2/ APR 1.x build of 1.4.4 that is fixed in trunk (and I
assume being rolled into 1.5)... Roll on 1.5.
