"Malformed network data" when trying ls over SSH

Hi !

I am using Win2k with Cygwin. I installed OpenSSH and I can logon
to the machine using plink.exe from Putty, which is an Open Source
SSH client. I can execute commands, etc. and everything works fine.

My problem is that svn reports an error when it connects to the server.
I guess I did something wrong somewhere, but I do not know where !

Anyway, my first real question is: Should I leave the svnserve process
running as a daemon if I use lib_ra_svn over SSH ? I tried the commands
below both with and without the process running, so it seems it is not

Here's the command I use to start the server process:
E:\>svnserve -r r -d

"r" is the name of the folder I want to share as root.

Here's what my servers file looks like:
home = localhost

svn-tunnel-agent = C:\putty\plink.exe

When I try to connect to the machine, I get this message:
C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\SUBVER~1>svn ls svn://localhost/repos
svn: Malformed network data
svn: Malformed network data

I am using Subversion 0.20.0
C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\SUBVER~1>svn --version
svn, version 0.20.0 (r5410)
