That tells you something is listening but it may not be svnserve, you
need to look at the network traffic. Use netcat/telnet on the server
and run "nc localhost svn" or "telnet localhost svn" and you should see
something like:

   ( success ( 2 2 ( ) ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 absent-entries commit-revprops depth log-revprops partial-replay ) ) )

If you get something like that then you need to look at the traffic when
running "svn st". Some ways to do that are here:
