I have to say that you may find the performance with Win2k3 to be poorer
than with a *nix based server (I'm including O/S X in this category,
being that it is BSD-like). I'm not saying that it won't work, merely
that there is a lot more historical tuning experience with Apache under
*nix than under Windows.

If you are indeed tripping over the same issue mentioned in the FAQ,
then you will only see it sometimes. It seems to depend heavily on the
size of the files being transferred (and possibly the load on the server).

APR 0.9.6 is *really* old at this point, so if Subversion 1.5 was built
vs Apache 2.2.x/APR 1.2.x, this problem may just go away completely.
There is also the factor that 1.5 includes a completely different
client-side webdav client (serf) which is experimental, but intended to
much better at such streamy traffic.
