When you are starting svnserve as yourself, it inherits all of *your*
login's enviroment and rights, including any mapped drives. When
svnserve is started as service, it is running with a local system
account which has no drives mapped. You wouldn't be able to access the
remote resource even as a UNC path (which implicitly creates a mapping),
because the service account has no rights to networked resources at all
(for security reasons).
