Subversion, xinetd, and "Malformed network data"

I currently have a Subversion 1.5.2 server running through svnserve +
xinetd. When I attempt to connect to my subversion server, however, I get:

svn: Malformed network data

Below is the contents of my xinetd config for subversion:

*service svn
    flags = REUSE
    socket_type = stream
    wait = no
    user = svn
    group = svn_group
    server = /usr/bin/svnserve
    server_args = -i -r /srv/svn/repo
    log_on_failure += USERID
    disable = no

This is located in the file: /etc/xinetd.d/svn

I run the following command only to find that it fails:

*$ svn ls svn://localhost/myrepository
svn: Malformed network data*

I've checked my xinetd log, however I see no failure. I can even put a
completely bogus repository URL into SVN and it'll still give the same

* $ svn ls svn://localhost/iosudohslkj2223oijosdijfaksjdlfkj
svn: Malformed network data*

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
