%HOMEPATH% isn't a literal path/directory. It's a (pseudo) environment
variable indicating the path to your user account's "home" directory.

I don't seem to have this variable defined on my XP SP2 installation
here, and haven't heard of it before (doesn't mean it doesn't exist
somewhere). Where did you see it referenced in this way?

Try %APPDATA%\Subversion instead (I believe this is how it's
documented in the official SVN docs, and on a default XP setup maps to
c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Subversion).
