Make sure to pass the --listen-host myserver.com option to svnserve.
Otherwise it asks the operating system for any address in ONE address
family (svnserve doesn't support multiple address families at the same time).
If the address returned by the OS happens to be an IPv6 address but you can
reach the server only via IPv4 you cannot reach svnserve.
