Problems running svnserve as Windows service

I am trying to run svnserve as a windows service.
At different places (like http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#svnserve-win-service) I found a very good description of what I have to do.
Unfortunately, when I follow the description, I have no problems registering the Windows service (both on Vista and XP) but on both systems, I cannot start the service.
The command I use for registering is:
sc create svn binpath= "D:\cygwin\bin\svnserve.exe --service -r D:\SubVersionReps\Default" displayname= "Subversion Server" depend= Tcpip start= auto

It seems to me that I have followed everything in the description.
When I try to start the service I get the following error (both on Vista and XP):
C:\>net start svn
The service is not responding to the control function.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186.

I have the same problem when I try to start the service through the GUI.
It appears that nobody else has this problem, but I have no idea why this is not working and how I could find out, why it is not working.
Thanks in advance,
Holger Naundorf
