Re: Windows svn+ssh freezes

Thanks DJ, Tim

The problem was I was putting an absolute path in Subversion/config and
didn't have plink.exe in my path. Once I added it to my path env and removed
the path from Subversion/config it was able to connect.

Note for plink users. If you try to use plink as the ssh client it says
'svn: Malformed network data'. To workaround add the password to

ssh=plink -l username -pw thepassword
