RE: [BUG] svn 1.2.x cannot reach dual-stack svnserve with IPv4

I am just upgrading to Vista 64, downloadet the latest subversion and immediately ran into this issue. This seems to affect all installations on Vista, doesn't it? Hopefully there is soon a fix available. It took me two evenings to figure out what's wrong as the symptoms are really weird.

What i do not understand... I would have no issue if the client could understand IPv6 as well. But it seems that the server binds only to IPv6 and the client can only connect using IPv4. Is this another restriction?

My symptoms on Vista are:
netstat -a on server only shows a binding of the subversion (port 3690)to an IPV6 address.
svn client can't connect (the remote machine actively refuses connection)
telnet on svn:<machine> 3690 works fine
Typing http://<machine>:3690 works fine
(Because telnet and Firefox can talk IPv6)

Workaround (Thank You for publishing this information) start server with command line option --listen-port <numeric IP> for example
svnserve.exe -d -r c:\mysvn --listen-port Check then that netstat -a shows a binding of the port to the IPv4 issue. Clients should work then again.

So hopefully there is a soon a fix availaible. This is a severe issue.
