The logic for reading Subversion configuration on Windows hasn't changed
since 1.0.

Most likely you're overriding the configuration somewhere else. The part
of the registry you refer to has the lowest priority; it can be
overriden by, in the following order (from lowest to highest priority):

  * the default user profile (in %COMMONAPPDATA%);
  * the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry area
  * the current user's profile (in %APPDATA%).

Any of these places may be overriding the setting you're trying to set
in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
