A Subversion server process would never do anything with ~/.subversion; only a Subversion client would.

As someone explained earlier in the thread, a Subversion client recreates the ~/.subversion directory when it runs, so something is causing a Subversion client to run. The only explanation I can think of is that on all three machines, something you've done is causing a Subversion client to run. A Subversion client does not have any kind of persistent process that stays running, so nothing in Subversion is designed to have the behavior you observe.
