I've had no trouble with AV interfering with my repositories. It tends
to cause more trouble with working copies than repos. YMMV - every AV
system handles things differently unfortunately.

Performance...can't say, I haven't run SVN on a Linux host with
similar hardware specs (I wanted to have my new server running Linux,
but it was a matter of "we know Novell and Windows, we barely have a
handle on Linux" in our shop). I've had no complaints about
performance though.

Security is entirely up to the person administrating and maintaining
the system. Subverison itself is pretty solid as far as security is
concerned (as is Apache, which I assume you'd be using to host the
repositories since you mention LDAP integration) - do you trust your
Windows boxes/admins?

The case-sensitivity is internal to the Subversion repository
datastructures and exists on all platforms Subversion runs on.
