I can't provide a whole lot of help on this topic, but I can point
out a few things.

That's the Subversion 1.0 book. You should be referring to the
Subversion 1.5 book:

If you're going to use the svn+ssh:// protocol, you do not need to
start svnserve yourself (and an svnserve you start yourself will not
be used by svn+ssh). The ssh process will start svnserve for you when
needed, and stop it when it's no longer needed.

You only need to start a global svnserve instance on the server if
you want to access it via the svn:// protocol.
