In some 1.5.x release, the svn client was updated to try both
IPv6 and IPv4 if one of them fails.

Also, svnserve does not support listening on multiple address families.
It can either listen on IPv6, or IPv4.

That explains why svn://localhost was working but svn://
was not.

A workaround is to run it out of inetd, if Windows has something
like that, or use apache instead of svnserve.
