Well, it doesn't sound like a bug to me, to be honest. It just sounds
like you're having trouble figuring out the Debian-style init system,
and that's above my head too. I'd start with man init and go from
there. I'm sure someone else can jump in here and give a much clearer
explanation of how to use tools such as updaterc.d correctly.

I used svnserv on Fedora (which does use the inetd.conf file), but
found the Apache 2 plugin much easier. It works equally well with
emacs, tortoiseSVN on Windows clients and a random Web browser.

Did you try creating a "local" file in /etc/init.d?
