[Subclipse-users] svn+ssh causes "Malformed network data"

When I try to create an ssh connection I get following error message:
  "Malformed network data"

The step I do:
- Right mouse klick in SVN Repository
- Select 'New / Repository location'
- Fill in the URL in the opened dialog: svn+ssh://<host>/<repos>
- Clicked 'Finish'
- Dialog 'Enter SSH Credentials' pops up with following data:
    Repository : svn+ssh://<host>
    Username : <user>
    x Use password authentication (<- is selected)
    o Use private key authentication
    Password : <empty>
    Key file : <empty> (disabled)
    Passphrase : <empty> (disabled)
    Port number: 22

- After inserting my password the OK-Button is enabled.
- OK klicked
- A dialog appears with following text:
    Error validating location:
"org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: Malformed network data"

    Keep location anyway?

- When clicking 'no', nothing is done.
- When clicking 'yes', a connection is added, but doesn't work.

If I use URL svn://<host>/<repos> it works fine (, of course without
Dialog 'Enter SSH Credentials').

When using the URL svn+ssh://<host>/<repos> with the svn command it
works fine too.

I'm using
- Linux (SuSE 10)
- Eclipse 3.1.1 (Java 1.4.2_06)
- Subversion 1.2.3
- Subclipse 0.9.104 (JavaSVN is set in the Preferences)
